United Airlines thinks it’s investigating after mistakenly flying a Kansas family’s dog to Japan.

KCTV backfires that Kara Swindle and her two children flew from Oregon to Kansas See, Missouri, Tuesday on a United flight.

They went to a cargo adroitness to pick up 10-year-old Irgo, a German shepherd, but were instead dedicated a Great Dane. Swindle, of Wichita, Kansas, learned Irgo had been put on a exodus to Japan, where the Great Dane was supposed to go.

Airline officials in Japan put Irgo on a desert back to Kansas City. It isn’t clear when the dog will arrive.

The announcement of Irgo’s unplanned odyssey comes as United admits another dog pop ones clogged after a flight attendant forced it to travel in an overhead bin on a Houston-to-New York scarper.
