Pes the dog has probably already forgotten his highway-speeds tumble from a car window.
Lisa Alton, not so much.
The Caledonia resident was driving up the Mountain on Highway 403 Wednesday just before noon when a furry black blur “bounced” on the pavement ahead of her.
“He just came out of the window of this car and the driver kept going, didn’t even slow down,” recalled Alton. “It was a horrible sight. It was insane. I couldn’t believe it then — I still don’t believe it now.”
A truck narrowly avoided hitting the bleeding Rottweiler as it limped towards the side of the road. Alton managed to quickly pull over and grab the frightened animal’s leash before he bolted.
“It’s amazing he survived, given the traffic and the speed he was going when he hit the ground,” said Alton, who gave the dog to city animal control. “But I want to make sure he stays alive.”
A veterinarian has patched up the dog’s cuts and scrapes, said animal services supervisor Jim Gillis, and the city is holding the dog until the end of Saturday in the hopes an owner will show up.
“He has a few abrasions, but he’s happy, very friendly,” said Gillis. “He was pretty lucky and, I guess, so was everyone else (on the road).”
What happens next is still up in the air.
