Little Princeton Perez got out of his room... and out of his house... but he's safe and sound, thanks to Apollo, the family dog!
The parents discovered the 2 year old was missing... and panicked when all they found was his sippy cup.
They live in a swampy, wooded area and they feared the worst.
Let's let the sheriff's department pick up the story from there--
"Van Buren County K9 Teams were called to the scene. Sheriff Abbott was able to locate footwear and Dog print impressions in a field. The Sheriff and K9 Teams were able to track the child where the child was located with the family dog who was at his side in a heavy wooded area, approximately 2 Miles from the residence. The Child was found to be in good health other than Multiple Bug Bites."
Did you catch that? They followed the dog's PAW prints!
Oh, didn't I tell you where this was? Paw Paw, Michigan. No lie.
They followed the paw prints in Paw Paw to find that little boy!
It's a real life Paw Patrol rescue.
