She continued: "Oh my god. It wasn't with anyone, it ran across, it had no collar on. I've circled round, and obviously I can't see it. I can't get out and look for it because I've got Mia with me. Oh my god a little Chihuahua."
Once Gemma arrived home safely with her little girl, she shared another video on social media, saying: "We're home. That little dog. Bless it. It just sprinted off, it was a busy road. And a Chihuahua, could have just got out couldn't it?"
