A 5-year-old guide dog that went missing after earlier this week has been found and reunited with his owner.

A facebook profile dedicated to the missing dog posted this message:

Sidney has been found! Thank you to Lesa who posted about a found dog sign on our facebook page and left the number!!! Sidney is doing well and has been in a wonderful home since Thursday morning.

The black Labrador belonged to Caroline Mosely of Southeast Dallas. Mosely is legally blind. They have been together for four years.  The animal ran away after being spooked by fireworks.

"We're trained to pay attention to him, and he's trained to pay attention to me," Mosely told NBCDFW on Friday. "He's trained to show me the steps. He's trained to stop at every entry doorway, so he lets me know I'm at a door."

A press release sent to NBCDFW from Guide Dogs for the Blind said Mosely and Sidney have been reunited.
