A nine-month-old Yorkie was not about to leave a Missouri rest stop without his master. Mistakenly left behind by an Arkansas truck driver, Rambo waited there for two days until his owner was able to track him down.

Rambo jumped out of Michael Siau’s rig when Siau stopped at a rest area near Hannibal on June 1, the Hannibal Courier-Post reported.

“Didn’t even cross my mind that he might jump out. He never has before,” Siau said.

Siau made it all the way to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 274km to the north, before he realized Rambo was gone.

Siau began calling authorities. By June 3, he had learned Hannibal had jurisdiction over the rest area. Hannibal animal control officer Tim Ledbetter was sent to the site.

Sure enough, little Rambo was there, waiting patiently.
