A spokesperson for the LAPD told BuzzFeed News the car had been reported stolen on Nov. 1.

On Wednesday, the suspect, who was not immediately identified, was taken into custody following the high-speed pursuit.

The dog, who police said did not belong to the suspect, is "safe" and has been "returned to the rightful owner."

After the footage aired, the dog quickly gained a number of supporters for rejecting a "life of crime."

Though others are wondering if he was just making his great escape.

When your accomplice is a dog and the pooch it like, "Fuck this shit, I'm out!"

Regardless, BuzzFeed News can confirm that the pooch is most certainly a Very Good Dog.
