Stray's days no longer numbered

Savannah, GA - By Christy Hutchings - bio | email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A dog found in bad condition, severely underweight, and spray painted is getting the help he needs  thanks to a friend who cares.

Ali Hunt was in Bryan County working when a dog walked up to her and collapsed. She brought him to Savannah's Humane Society hoping they could help. The Humane Society was closed, and doesn't normally take stray dogs, but they made an exception and even vaccinated the dog.

Thursday they will turn the dog over to animal control, where maybe his owners can be located.

Hunt couldn't be happier the Humane Society was willing to help.

"I couldn't have asked for better people who understood the situation and took charge and took care of it. I am glad he's here. I'm so relieved this dog is going to be taken care of, and my boyfriend's not going to kill me for bringing him home," said Hunt.

The Humane Society believes the dog may be a hunting dog because of the numbers spray painted on his side.

They're going to look for the owner, but if they can't find the owner, Hunt says she'll be coming back to Savannah to adopt the dog herself.
