At around noon, rescuers brought Brody, the lost puppy who captured the hearts of Butte citizens to the Butte Veterinary Center..

An update from the veterinary center said that Brody is in good condition.


Just before rescuers captured Brody, Bruce Pedersen, the vet on standby, talked about what to expect when Brody was brought in.

"If there is medical attention needed. . . so yeah were just prepared for any treatment necessary or stabilization or rehydrating- anything that would be necessary so yeah it has become quite a human-interest story indeed," Pedersen said.

Brody went missing when his owners were in an accident with a semi on I-90 near Homestake Pass. He was located on Valentine's day and rescuers had been trying to capture him since then.

Rescuers declined to do an interview saying that bringing the dog home is more important than their story of rescuing him.
