TWO Cleveland dogs are having their moment of fame after a picture of them in the back of a police car was shared on social media.

The lucky duo have become the subject of some paw-ful puns after their escapade on Cleveland’s streets was cut short by police on Friday.

Queensland Police Service posted the picture and wrote: “I told you we would get in trouble for walking without mum and dad.”

QPS added in their post that the duo were picked up by Cleveland police after doing a runner from their home.

“After a ride in the back of the police car they were returned safely #PugLife”,” the social media post said.

A police spokesperson said the offenders got a free ride to the Cleveland police station but the story had a happy ending.

“The police officers were driving along Wellington Street, Cleveland near the cemetery when they noticed to dogs running on the other side of the road with cars slowly driving behind them,” the spokesperson said.

“The officer’s drove closer and opened the door to the police vehicle where the two dogs immediately jumped in.”

The officers took the pair back to the police station as they were dehydrated.

The dogs had a cool drink and were taken to the Redland Animal Shelter, where they were later reunited with their owners.
