NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A pup was rescued after getting loose on the FDR Drive Monday night police said.

A good Samaritan began to chase Daiki, a 4-year-old Shiba Inu around 9 p.m.after he began to play on the northbound lanes of the FDR Drive just before the Manhattan Bridge.

According to Sgt. Carlos Nieves, who arrived on the scene and witnessed Daiki running around, said on Twitter that the four-legged animal caused a complete standstill on the FDR."There’s a guy chasing her on the highway," Nieves added. "And the gentleman catches her. First thing he tells me is "I’m afraid of dogs.'"

Nieves was able to bring Daiki to safety and eventually reunite him with his owners.

The reunion was also posted to Twitter.

"He was reunited with his family a short time ago. Thanks to the @NYPD5Pct for bringing his mommy over. Just wish I would've gotten the good samaritans name that saved Daiki."
