Lost dog Rocko was reunited with his owner Tory Johnson after a week apart Wednesday night.

The dog was lost on Interstate 90 between the Westfield and Dunkirk exits Aug. 12. Rocko was eventually located three days later by two Forestville High School students, Lauryn Pierce and Annie Bruce.

With help from Mary Beth McElligot and Lisa Fish-Vaccore, of T&M WNY Lost Dog Search Rescue and Trap they were able to catch the dog and then took him to the Lakeshore Humane Society where he was kept until Johnson, a truck driver, could return.
