SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — A dog in quarantine after biting a person in San Marcos broke out of the animal shelter sometime early Tuesday morning. Shortly after asking for help finding the dog, the city of San Marcos says the St. Bernard mix was found.

The San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter was asking for the public’s help finding the dog, named Lucky, who broke out of the shelter at 750 River Rd. between 10:45 p.m. on Monday and 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

He was turned over to the shelter after biting a family member near Buda. The shelter says the dog is friendly and the bite is believed to have been accidental, but it’s important for them to complete the state-mandated quarantine observation period.
