BYSTANDERS RESCUE PIT BULL BEING DRAGGED FROM TRUCK - "The onlookers managed to flag down the driver and untangle the puppy, only to watch the driver take off and leave the dog."
A four-month-old Pit Bull in Sacramento was saved by bystanders who saw him being dragged under a passing truck. The Good Samaritans flagged down the driver and untangled the dog, but the driver then took off. The Pit Bull was rescued by Chako Pit Bull Rescue and is awaiting possible adoption. Here’s more from fox40.com:
The puppy, nicknamed ‘Django’ was seen caught underneath the wheel of a pickup truck near the corner of 19th and J. The hazel-eyed puppy was getting strangled by his chain, after he either jumped or fell out of the bed of a white pickup truck.
The horrifying scene was witnessed by people getting their coffee at Starbucks.
“He’s underneath the vehicle, they’re thinking he’s crushed, he’s dragged, he’s dead,” Dawn Capp of Chako Pit Bull Rescue told FOX40.
The onlookers managed to flag down the driver and untangle the puppy, only to watch the driver take off and leave the dog. Shocked, someone rushed the puppy to El Camino Veterinary, with a gas on his leg and a bloody mouth.
“He came through remarkably well. It’s like he’s made of rubber. He has very minor injuries considering what happened to him,” said Capp.
Fortunately, it appears that the dog suffered relatively minor injuries. He deserves a good home where he can be safe from harm. Click here for the full story and here for more about Chako Pit Bull Rescue.(Photo from Chako Pit Bull Rescue Facebook page)
