SAN FRANCISCO, CA – An abandoned dog in San Francisco got an early Christmas present this month: a forever home.

The dog, named Polaris, was left at the San Francisco airport by an international traveler who decided to continue traveling without them.

According to the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, United Airlines employees cared for the pup while it completed the requirements to enter the US.

Polaris was adopted by a United Airlines captain, and the airline threw an adoption party on December 15.

The company also donated five thousand dollars to support the San Francisco SPCA.
