Update: Toronto Animal Services say that the dog has been reunited with his family. “Sober’s family was very worried about him, and have been searching for him since he went missing. They want to thank the TTC driver, Toronto Police and our staff for getting him the help he needed,” they said.
The Toronto Transit Commission is trying to reunite a husky with its owner after it was struck and injured by a car and hid under a TTC bus on Saturday evening in the city’s east end.
According to TTC spokesperson Brad Ross, the dog was struck by a car near Eglinton and Wardon and “injured and afraid, he took refuge under one of our buses.”
Ross said thanks to a TTC operator, supervisor, police and Toronto Animal Control, the dog was coaxed out and taken to a vet.
Unfortunately, the dog wasn’t wearing a collar and has no microchip and so Ross posted photos of the dog on Twitter in the hopes of finding its owner.
