"High speed pursuit of [dog emoji] this morning on the #BayBridge! Suspect taken into custody. All are safe! #onlyinSF" the CHP tweeted.

Police said the dog was captured after an officer used his jacket to distract the canine.

San Francisco County Animal Care took custody of the chihuahua and officials are working to find its owners.

The CHP said the chihuahua is not facing any charges.

"We just gave him a verbal warning. It went something like this, "woof, woof, WOOF!" the department tweeted.
