In Boca Raton, Florida, a dog tossed from an SUV on Saturday afternoon onto a highway is lucky to be alive. Eyewitness Lisa Gabrielle had been driving in the area when she spotted a black SUV slow down along Camino Real and push a black and white dog out onto the roadway.
According to WptvNews, Lisa’s heart just broke, and she just knew she had to help.
“I saw the car stop and I just saw hands just push them out. I rescued my own dog two years ago and I just saw him when I saw this. I really hope that we can find whoever did that is because I am such an animal lover and the fact that I saw a dog have to go through something like that is so heartbreaking.”
So Lisa took the Dalmatian home with her for the night – dubbing the friendly pooch Buster and on Sunday brought him to the Tri-County Animal Rescue. Although Buster doesn’t seem to be injured, the shelter did state he was severely underweight. Today, Buster is scheduled for a complete examination at the vet, and he may be eligible for adoption in the near future.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has been notified. Anyone recognizing this dog is asked to call authorities. There is just no excuse to throw a dog out of a moving vehicle. Buster deserves justice.
