United Airlines mistakenly ships dog to Ireland

A free trip to Ireland, just in time for Saint Patrick's Day, sounds like a lucky break, right? Well, not if you're Hendrix, a dog that found himself in an international mix-up on United Airlines.

He was supposed to be on a flight from New Jersey to Phoenix. Instead, he ended up flying for a full 24-hours, and wound up in Ireland.

"My dog got sent to frickin Ireland," said owner Meredith Grant. "Like, how Ireland? Not even, like, he went to Florida. He's in Ireland!"

"It was just, what do you say except hope he gets some Guinness and corned beef and cabbage," said Hendrix's other owner Joe Grant.

We don't know what Hendrix ate during his odyssey, but he seems okay now that's he's back in Arizona.

United Airlines says it's conducting a review of what happened. The company has offered the family a refund.
