A motorist travelling on the Coquihalla is reporting a dog running loose down the highway near the Zopkios brake check.

According to Jeneane Ruscheinsky the black dog was dragging a leash near the runaway lane, about 11:30 a.m. Friday.

Apparently a truck driver pulled over and tried to catch the dog but the pup took off.

Ruscheinsky is hoping that someone is able to find the dog and bring it to safety, before it wanders onto the highway.
