TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A Belgian Malinois K-9 missing for three days after a rollover crash in south-central Idaho has been found.

The Twin Falls County Sheriff's office says 17-month-old Drago was recovered Wednesday after a homeowner reported him sleeping in her yard.

Spokeswoman Lori Stewart says Deputy Stanton J. Wiggins went to the house with a retired K-9 named Flynn who lives at Wiggins' home with Drago.

Stewart says they were able to approach Drago and get his leash on. Drago looks to be OK but is being checked by a veterinarian.

Wiggins was injured in the crash on Sunday and required hand surgery after police say another vehicle failed to yield and pulled out in front of Wiggins' patrol vehicle.

Wiggins recently went to Florida to pick up Drago after Flynn retired.
