Boomer the dog went missing six weeks ago and was reunited with his owner thanks to the quick thinking of a Crosslinx construction worker. Things were pretty ruff, but are now dog-gone great.
Losing your pup is every dog owner’s nightmare.
That’s exactly what happened to Simon Chadwick.
His three-year-old lab-mix named Boomer went missing in late October after he got loose from a relative’s home in Toronto.
And after six weeks without a whiff of finding him, Chadwick was beginning to give up hope.
But all that changed when he recently got a call from Toronto Animal Services.
Just last week, Crosslinx site supervisor Scott Shaw was arriving to start his day at the Cedarvale Station construction site for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT – when he noticed something strange.
To his surprise, there was a small black dog hiding under some decking. After he managed to coax the dog out, he noticed it had a collar and called Toronto Animal Services – the rest is history.
Boomer was quickly reunited with his owners and is now safely back home in Oakville where Chadwick and his partner live.
