A dog running on a highway in Canada is lucky to be safe and sound.
On a busy Friday commute, motorists on Highway 401 saw a runaway dog on the passing lane. He seemed to appear out of nowhere, wandered into traffic, and came extremely close to being hit by a car numerous times.
Drivers stopped and opened their car doors, trying to persuade the dog to come to safety. Other people actually got out of their vehicles and tried to catch the running dog. With all of the chaos, noise, and automobiles driving by, this only added to the dog’s confusion and he took off running.
The chase to find the dog seemed to last forever. Highway workers spent almost half an hour trying to catch the dog. Despite not catching him, they did at least scare him off the highway. Animal control officers were next to try and find the loose dog. They finally found him resting in a backyard.
Animal control officers were able to identify the dog and his owner. He belonged to a man with epilepsy, and the dog was specially trained to detect his seizures.
He had been missing for a couple of days, after he became scared by another dog near his house. This runaway dog is definitely fortunate to be safe without so much of a scratch on him.
