A 15-year-old dog named Kentucky was the only survivor of a double homicide in Georgia.  A mother and daughter were the victims identified by the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office in the double homicide; Judy Potts, 72, and Krystal Spainhour, 44, were found dead at their home located on Tanglewood Drive in Dalton just a week ago.

Whitfield County Animal Supporters from the local shelter identified the women’s devoted dog, Kentucky as the only survivor. It is believed she may have tried to protect her owners.


“The blood on Kentucky is hers! She also received blunt force trauma and is coughing up blood!
Most have heard now about the double homicide over night in Whitfield County! We have a third victim who was brought to the shelter! This sweet girl belonged to one of the victims and also received blunt force trauma! After arriving at the shelter she began to cough blood out her nose!”
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC volunteered to help, and Kentucky has been receiving treatment and care, and has been recovering from traumatic injuries including having been “kicked her in the back, ribs dislocated, diaphragm fractured ribs and sternum dislocated.”
Yet, after a week of recovery, Kentucky has been adopted by members of the victims’ family and will stay in Georgia where she is familiar and comfortable.
