Toronto airport staff spent 12 hours chasing an escaped dog around the tarmac

Staff members at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport are being praised around the world this week for catching an energetic rescue dog who, upon landing in Canada, escaped from a plane to tear around the runway for at least 12 hours.

Crystal, a white Podenco, had boarded a British Airways flight in Spain with members of a Nova Scotia-based rescue organization that facilitates adoptions between abandoned Spanish Podencos and people in Atlantic Canada.
