If you follow the TSA's Instagram feed, you know that people will try and pack some pretty interesting items in their checked baggage.

A TSA officer at New York's LaGuardia airport on Tuesday, however, may have found the most unexpected - and adorable - of all: a live Chihuahua.

When a hard-sided suitcase triggered an alarm, the officer opened the bag to inspect its contents and was shocked to find a cute little pup staring up at him.

TSA worked with the airline to locate the dog’s owner, who was unaware the dog was in her luggage, according to TSA officials.

She said it must have nestled in with the other belongings in the suitcase while she was packing.

The adorable stowaway went home safe and sound after the woman called her husband to come pick her up.
