"But unlike the other competitors, Boogie didn't get his medal for finishing the event until yesterday. Originally sent to an animal shelter after his performance, a storm of Facebook comments and an alert by authorities got the attention of his owner, who quickly picked him up. Shortly thereafter, Boogie was reportedly fitted with a tracking microchip and an appointment to be neutered.

Boogie was unavailable to comment on the race and his upcoming surgery.

The animal is also the first dog to ever finish a half marathon without human assistance, Evansville authorities told NBC affiliate".

What a reward, a medal in one paw and no balls at all.
