The dog, who locals believe is a good boy, discovered zipped inside a suitcase by a group of Etobicoke joggers this weekend is expected to make a full recovery.

According to a post by Black Dog Rescue, the group of joggers were running through the Lampton Park area of Dundas Street West and Scarlett Road when they discovered a black suitcase which was making slight movements.

“They could hear a dog inside,” the online post said. “They could tell the suitcase was thrown down the hill above where they found it.”
