An adorable puppy has been adopted by a United Airlines captain after being brought to San Francisco airport by a passenger from Asia who abandoned the animal when told it had the wrong paperwork.

The unnamed owner abandoned him in September when he was just 12 weeks old because he didn’t have the proper papers for the pet to stay in the US.

Nicknamed Polaris, after United’s business-class product, the little dog was transferred to an animal facility at Los Angeles International Airport where he was isolated for three months while United officials worked out a solution to keep him in the country.

The airline partnered with the San Francisco SPCA to find a German Shepherd mix for a new home, and now about six months old, he was eventually adopted by United Airlines Captain William Dale who celebrated his homecoming with an adoption party at the airport.

“The United customer service team had a huge challenge ensuring that Polaris was safe, healthy and found a loving home,” said Lisa Feder, president of the San Francisco SPCA Rescue and Care Division.

Approximately 30 airline employees applied to certify Polaris but in the end Captain Dale was chosen.

“Sometimes we deal with the craziest situations,” United spokesman Vincent Basafium told NBC News.

Polaris' original owner abandoned him in September at just 12 weeks old because the dog didn't have the papers to stay in the US.

This was probably one of the most unusual things we have ever dealt with and also one of the most challenging.

To be able to have the result that we achieved as a team and to see that Polaris will come home to a family that will give him a good life is really a special moment for me.

He added, “It feels great to see this whole story and that Polaris will have a loving home with Captain Dale and his family – just in time for the holidays.”
