On the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2022, around 5:20 p.m., a pedestrian was struck by a white SUV while walking his dog. The male victim was crossing the street at the intersection of Taunton Road and Oak Park Boulevard in Oakville, at the time.

The pedestrian suffered non life-threatening injuries and was treated in the hospital.

The dog fled, however, startled by the accident; named June, the Irish Wolf Hound was believed to be wounded.

But June was soon found and returned to its owner, thanks to a Reddit post, after a quick stitch-up at the vet.

The suspect is a man between the ages of 35 and 45, with an unshaven beard; he was driving a white SUV.
