Which words/phrase in this sentence is misplaced?

Having been discovered, Rover looked up at his owner with puppy-dog eyes.

a. with puppy-dog eyes
b. been discovered
c. his owner
d. rover looked up

I am torn between (a.) and (c.). Since the answer (c.) says "his owner" and not "at his owner"...then I am more inclined to choose answer (a.).
