Though “Vernon” the dog’s rescue was carried live on many tv stations, it turns out that his owner, an elderly woman, speaks only Spanish, and didn’t know her dog had become a media sensation since his rescue didn’t get as much attention on Spanish-speaking stations.

Vernon’s name is really Spikey, and he and the woman’s other dog (who was also found wandering loose) will soon be returned to their owner, who thinks the dogs got loose when one of her grandchildren left a side gate open.
