“I rolled over on my side of the bed and said, ‘No, no, no, that’s not our dog,'” said Julie Johnson.

The couple checked out the dog and decided it seemed harmless. They believe the dog got in through their back door accidentally left open.
The couple shared a photo of the dog on Facebook, viral. Someone recognized the dog as theirs and came to collect the pup. Johnson asked the owner to bring family photos as proof. The dog had traveled almost 2 miles for the sleepover.
