An anonymous donor paid for the veterinary care of a dog hit by a reckless driver after Walton County sheriff’s deputies received the call on "LivePD" on A&E.
On Saturday night, the Sheriff's Office was notified that a dog had been run over by a vehicle on Indian Woman Road in Santa Rosa Beach. The caller stated the driver was swerving and nearly ran over her son before hitting the dog and fleeing the scene.
When animal control arrived, they found an injured female dog. The dog, who has since been named Dora by the staff at the Walton County Animal Shelter, was up and walking but had an injured left hind leg.
After watching the episode on A&E’s "LivePD," an anonymous donor offered to pay for the dog's treatment.
A local veterinarian determined that Dora’s pelvis was broken in three places and prescribed kennel rest for eight weeks, but said she will fully recover. The Walton County Animal Shelter is trying to find Dora’s rightful owner. If anyone has any information, call the shelter at 850-892-8758.
