THE BRONX — He cleaned up real nice after that rough ride!
Waltz, the abandoned poodle mix who took over an entire 6 train Tuesday, got a haircut ahead of his possible adoption, officials said.
After Waltz was spotted riding a Manhattan-bound 6 train near Third Avenue-138th Street about 8 a.m. Monday, the MTA cleared the train and returned it to their yard in Westchester Square, officials said.
MTA officials then handed the little guy over to the Animal Care Centers of New York City who dubbed him, "Waltz."
He seemed to have been abandoned, but was otherwise healthy, officials said.
He was also a little shaggy so the ACC staff gave him a haircut.

Waltz's owner had 72 hours to claim him before he would be put up for adoption, ACC officials said.
They didn't say whether anyone had come forward by Thursday afternoon or share any adoption information.
But DNAinfo readers are already clamoring to give Waltz a good home.
