Dog sent overseas by mistake returned to Kansas family

Then on Tuesday, another case of mistaken canine identity occurred on a United flight, sending a pet owner into a frenzy when she discovered a Great Dane in the place of her German Shepard, Irgo, in a facility at the Kansas City airport.

"They had no idea where the dog was", said Swindle to CNN.

'I burst into tears instantly because this has just all been a whirlwind. The mix-up occurred during connecting flights in Denver. We have notified our customers that their pets have arrived safely and will arrange to return the pets to them as soon as possible. We apologise for this mistake and are following up with the vendor kennel where they were kept overnight to understand what happened'.

Airline officials in Japan put Irgo on a flight back to Kansas City.

"This decision was made in the interest of "[choosing] the fastest route to reunite the dog with his family", United spokesperson Natalie Noonan said in a statement via email to TODAY.

This is United's second animal-related incident in less than a week.

United said Wednesday that by April it will issue "bright colored bag tags to customers traveling with in-cabin pets", and that "this visual tag will further help our flight attendants identify pets in-cabin". "It's like losing a family member".

"I feel devastated. Every night I cry because it feels really empty without him", said Sophia Ceballos, 11, who hasn't been the same since her puppy died.
