An Edmonton truck driver, dubbed “St. Nick,” recently helped return a dog to North Pole, Alaska, making Christmas wishes come true for four children.
On Nov. 9, Yukon the dog was heading home to North Pole with owner Jeff Hayes and his brother-in-law when they stopped for a break north of Fort St. John, B.C.
Yukon managed to escape from his collar and ran into the woods.
Finally, after being on the run and hiding for a week, Yukon was caught. However, the family still had to figure out how to bring him home.
Nick Stoneburgh, an Edmonton truck driver with Capital Transport, was contacted to help.
“It was kind of funny. Here’s St. Nick picking up a Christmas present for the kids,” Stoneburgh said. “How can you turn down kids at Christmas?”
