VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) -- A wandering dog that was rescued Monday from the roof of Vancouver-area home is reunited with its owner.

News reports of an animal control officer luring the dog with bits of hot dog were drawn to the attention of Bennett Muasau who had been looking for his 4-year-old Chihuahua mix named Brownie.

He says Brownie has been known to get over 6-foot fences, but no one knows how he made it onto the roof of the house five blocks away.
