CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - A friendly pig with pink toenails spotted earlier this week in a Florida flower bed has made it all the way home.

    

Clearwater police reported on social media Wednesday that Louie's owner has been located, and the pig has been reunited with his family.

    

Louie was found rooting his way through a flower bed Monday when something caught his attention: dog treats. Turns out the wayward black-and-white oinker has an affinity for canine snacks and was easily lured out of the flowers by animal control officers.

    

Clearwater police posted a photo of the manicured porker on their Facebook and Twitter pages. The pig was in the custody of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals until his owner claimed him.

    

Police didn't publicly identify the owner.
