Stray dog closes Gardiner

Mar 17, 2007 09:48 AM
Meghan Hurley
Staff Reporter
A Husky dog wearing a protective Elizabethan collar forced police to close the Gardiner Expressway early this morning in the Spadina Ave. area as they tried to catch it.
A motorist driving down the York St. off-ramp spotted the dog running up the ramp this morning and called police.

The dog is now off of the highway, but still at large.

Some people pulled over, but itís not known whether they were concerned citizens or the dogís owners, police said.

I am so upset I thought she was safe and she gave me so
much hope. How can this be! My husband thought I
had lost it...when I read about this last escape I yelled
"OH NO"
Please let us know she is safe

She is real escape artist, that's for sure. Poor girl! that her luck holds and she makes it through this misadventure, too.

If you look at the post when she was found, it says she was at the vet, maybe for her spay ?

If Maddie was abused by her original owner it will take a long time for someone to earn her trust. Maddie will remain in my thoughts and prayers until then. Stay safe Maddie and please let those that care help you.

I was watching for her on the news and in the paper,but I guess closing the Gardiner for a runaway dog is not newsworthy:sad:
All of us living close to Toronto know the horrific traffic there,hopefully she ran south to Lakeshore where there is parkareas.
The collar will make her more noticeable,but much more difficult for her:sad:
This is just incredible:sad:

I don't think Maddie will ever be happy:sad: She remenids me of a a dog I knew who lived on the reserve. No matter how much we tried to help and give him love and medication, he always left to roam wild in the woods.:sad: I guess MAddie is a free spirit, but in the wrong place:sad:
