Dog rescued from B.C.’s Coquihalla highway reunited with Albertan owner
Canada
Archer, a black mastiff-cross, was found sitting cold and alone atop a snow bank near the Coquihalla summit on Friday by a road crew with VSA Highway Maintenance.

Carlie Holman, one of the workers that found Archer and who cared for him over the weekend, met up with Archer’s owner Tony, a trucker from Alberta, for the emotional reunion which was captured on video.

Tony can be seen getting out of his rig, squatting down, and calling “Archer” to the dog.

The pup runs to him, wagging his tail before the driver stands up and says “thank you” to Holman.

The pair then embraces in a hug. Archer, not to be outdone, hops up on his hind legs to join in a three-way cuddle.

“It was quite the reunion, it was definitely tear-jerking for sure. Lots of kissing and hugging,” said Holman.
