VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Two dogs whose new year reportedly included being dumped from a moving car onto a freeway onramp are back with their Vancouver, Wash., owner.

The Columbian reports that a young southwest Washington man told police he rescued the chihuahua and cocker spaniel Wednesday night after the car in front of him slowed to about 15 mph on an Interstate 205 onramp and someone forced the dogs onto the highway shoulder.

Andrew Naidenov says he pulled over and both dogs jumped into his vehicle. State Patrol Trooper Will Finn confirms Naidenov called 911 to report the dog dumping.

Dog owner Geraldine Davis says she awoke Thursday to find her dogs missing. Possibly scared by fireworks, she says they escaped from her property. She posted an ad on Craigslist and soon got a call from the Humane Society of Southwest Washington, which had taken custody of the dogs.

Davis was reunited with Poncho and Seeley.

A Clark County animal control officer is investigating, but says the vehicle description is vague.
