THE BRONX (PIX11) – A tiny dog rescued from a subway tunnel last week has been reunited with his family.

A New York City transit worker plucked the dog from the tracks last Thursday and has been treating him as her own ever since.

Fliers had been posted around the neighborhood for a dog named Byby, a poodle mix that looks very similar to the canine rescued from the tunnel. The fliers note the pup was last seen about 8 a.m. Feb. 9 near 181st Street and Anthony Avenue.

Three days later, a New York City transit worker spotted a 4-year-old dog living in a Bronx subway tunnel. Charles Gaston scooped up the dog, which by this time had clumping fur and was covered in dirt, and took her home. He named her Delta, after the D line on which she was found.

Then it was off to the vet and the groomer – and to the Internet. He made an Instagram account for the dog to chronicle her transformation.

Delta made a few TV news appearances since her rescue. Tuesday afternoon, the dog was reunited with her grateful family.
