Cochise County Sheriff's deputies have located a dog that got lost after a single-vehicle rollover near Willcox.

The dog is a chihuahua/boxer mix named Rico Suave and has a multi-colored collar with two dags. He is microchipped in Deming, N.M.

Rico Suave was found just before 10 p.m. Wednesday night with what appears to be a back injury, according to CCSO.

The woman who found the dog said that she opened the back door of her home to let her own dog in and Rico Suave came in as well. She had seen news reports that he was missing, checked his collar to confirm it was the right dog and contacted the sheriff's department.

Deputies say the owner is coming from New Mexico to meet with the woman and take Rico Suave to the veterinarian before heading home.
