Michigan State Police are looking for the owner of a large dog who was taken into custody, and then for a ride, in Royal Oak Township.

Police say Metro North troopers were dispatched to the 8000 block of Coverdale on a report of a "vicious pit bull" that had the homeowner trapped in her home.

Troopers were able to locate the dog, and "using their community service skills," police said, "the dog was persuaded to join the MSP."

"He is currently residing in the post commanders office running the post," MSP joked in a tweet on Thursday. 

If this is your dog you're asked to call the contact MSP Metro North post at 248-584-5740 as soon as possible. Police said if he's not claimed, said the hefty pooch will be transported to Oakland County Animal Control by the end of the day.
