Smidgie, a seven-year-old Corgi, was inside Wayne Cardinal's black Ford F-150 pickup when it was stolen from a parking lot yesterday at about 1:30 p.m.
The dog was found wandering in the cold that evening, near Rotary Park, by a Good Samaritan according to Peel Regional Police. The man kept the dog overnight, saw a news story about the theft in the morning, and contacted police.
Cardinal and Smidgie, who was unharmed after the ordeal, were reunited on Saturday. There is still no sign of the truck.
