Good Samaritan rescues injured dog, hopes to find owner
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (WSVN) -- A Good Samaritan is hoping the owner of a dog that he rescued comes forward.
Timothy Smiley said he rescued a Shih Tzu after it was hit by a car near the Palmetto Expressway and 167th Street. He cleaned up the pooch and is now taking care of him.
"If this is your dog, you know, you could come and get it before the Humane Society comes and gets it," said Smiley. "I would rather return it to the owner than for it to go to a cage, you know."
Smiley said he thinks the dog matches the description of one that went missing in his neighborhood.
He hopes the owners will come looking for it.
