Francisco Montalvo is out of the dog house and into the big house.

The 19-year-old Washington state man was sniffed out by a police dog after officers say he stole a car.

According to authorities, the driver of the stolen vehicle bailed out and made a run for it.

Officers then called in the K-9 unit for help.

That's when he was found hiding in a dog house.

Montalvo has been booked into the Benton County jail for investigation of eluding a police vehicle and first-degree theft.
