Diesel, a male Great Dane separated from its owner after both were hurt in a traffic accident at Danforth and Kennedy roads, managed to find his own way home Tuesday, Jan. 29, night.
Toronto police said a northbound tow truck hit the dog and owner, a 24-year-old woman, at the intersection around 5 p.m.
The dog, which stands three feet tall, “broke free from its owner and ran off” before the owner was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police from 41 Division asked the public in release to help search for Diesel, described as 18 months old with an uncropped tail and ears and an “orange-and-brown tiger-like pattern.”
Today, however, police announced Diesel was found outside its owner’s home on a nearby street at 8:50 p.m. Tuesday by a neighbour.
The extent of the dog’s injuries were not known.
