Hubby and I were on our way home from our date when I see an object laying in the median, it was a dog, and it was injured but alive, all I say is Honey! and he immediately turns around. We get there, a female stray is laying there bleeding, I was a vet tech at one point in time and I could tell she had broken bones and possible internal bleeding, now Im ticked, beyond ticked off in fact, someone hit this little dog and left her there I have a piece of their car that was laying near her, its from the right side undercarriage/right bumper. So its 11pm and Im sitting in the middle of the road w/ this poor dog, my husband calls the cops, they come out and yell at us to get out of the road and leave the dog there, I said some unsavory words and told them to, well you know so they drove off My husband after sitting with the dog and us determining she isnt aggressive, scoops her up and carries her to the side of the road by our Jeep, we lay her down, she cant walk, now Im sure she has a broken or dislocated hip; she was bleeding but not bad enough to kill her so I sat there and sat there and Im trying to figure out what to do when I remember my vet will do ER calls, now its about 1230am now, and I gathered a small crowd around me as Im sitting here holding this pup, I was AMAZED that anyone stopped in the first place!!! So we load the poor baby in the car when my phone rings, its my vet, THANK GOD!!! We rushed her to her and she over-looks her, by now Im hoping to keep this girl, so you can imagine my dismay when we realized she had not only a broken hip like I suspected, but a broken scapula and a broken pelvis, my vet just looks at me with knowing eyes and ask me what to do, its up to me I decided to put the poor girl to sleep I of course cried because she was such a fighter and held on for two hours while I sat with her trying to figure out what to do! So, now Im out SEVERAL hundreds of dollars for a dog that SOMEONE else HIT!!! I wouldnt change a thing I did, but Im absolutely livid that someone left her there for dead like that and it was very obvious that she was still alive!!! Im so sick of people; people are just so evil So if you hit a dog, please stop, I cant afford to keep doing this and I shouldnt have to, people need to take responsibility for their actions; even if it includes putting a dog to sleep because you hit it!!!
