NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A dog who was possibly hit by a car and then rescued by a Good Samaritan is in need of a good home.
Joshua Kroah was walking to work, heading east on Ives Dairy Road near 441 last Thursday, when he spotted blood smears on the sidewalk. "Just one spot after another, and you could just see where he was dragging," he said.
Kroah then saw on the grass a big white dog leaning on a fence, who he believes was hit by a car. "To just know that you hit an animal, and you left it is just shocking," said Kroah.
Kroah immediately called Miami-Dade Animal Services. They picked up the dog, named him Ghost and bandaged his leg. "He's happy. He's content, and we are keeping him comfortable," said Miami-Dade Animal Services spokesperson Xiomara Mordcovich.
Ghost has passed his five-day hold at the shelter. Stray dogs are only allowed to stay at the shelter for five days. "The dog that has been through so much to survive and be a survivor needs someone to be his voice and to speak for him, and that's what I want to do," said Kroah.
Miami-Dade Animal Services are hoping Ghost gets a home. If you would like to adopt Ghost, you can do so by clicking here: http://www.miamidade.gov/animals/
