The dog, who jumped on a bus from Ryde to Newport.
UPDATED WEDNESDAY 14:55*
AN UNUSUAL passenger arrived at Newport bus station yesterday (Tuesday).
The small dog jumped on board the Number 9 bus at Cross Street, Ryde, but it was not until all the passengers had got off the bus that the driver realised his owner was not with him.
Staff looked after it at their office in Newport and appealed on social network Twitter for the owner to get in touch, however it was later collected by the Isle of Wight Council dog warden.
*The dog was re-united with its owner yesterday afternoon according to the Isle of Wight Council.
