ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Hold on, little doggie!

Florida Highway Patrol says a dog, which appeared to be a dachshund, caused some commotion on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge Sunday afternoon.

Troopers said the dog was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes about halfway up the incline of the bridge.

The dog jumped onto the outside of the bridge when a driver stopped and got the dog to safety, FHP said.

Troopers said in an email they did not expect any further updates to be sent out about the incident.
