Deuce, one of the Durham Bulls canine mascots, has been found.

Deuce went missing after being scared by fireworks after Saturday's baseball game. The Durham Bulls Athletic Club posted a missing dog poster on their Facebook page in hopes of getting the word out.

James Pryor, who had seen on television that Deuce was missing, found the dog Wednesday morning around 8:30 a.m. Pryor was at the U.S. Army Reserve Center off of Carroll Street when he spotted Deuce.

Pryor said he was able to get the dog in his car and called 911. Authorities then set Pryor up with the Durham County Sheriff's Animal Services.

Deuce is now back with his owner, Gene Lonsway. 

"I sat down on the floor with him, partly to say hi and partly because I was sort of a 19th century lady feeling kind of faint," Lonsway said of their reunion. "It was kind of overpowering, really, I'm just so glad to have this boy back."

Deuce was believed to have a microchip but animal services could not find one on the dog. Lonsway says Deuce will get a microchip now.

Lonsway says special recognition planned for Deuce at Friday night's game. Deuce will also take a special victory lap around bases.
