Dog gets on the wrong plane

March 18, 2018

A 10-year-old German Shepherd has been accidentally shipped across the world due to a United Airlines mix up.

Kansas woman Kara Swindle was shocked to discover her dog Irgo missing when she arrived at the Kansas City cargo facility to collect him.

Instead she was presented with a great dane that was supposed to be making its way to Japan.

Both dogs had an overnight stop in Denver on their respective journeys and it’s believed they were switched when getting ready for the next plane.

According to Ms Swindle it was an anxious wait to find Irgo as the airline could not confirm where he was until the plane landed in Japan.

United Airlines apologised for the mix up and says it is looking into how the mistake occurred.
