A good samaritan

We wish to thank some "Good Samaritans" who are in the Newnan area. On his maintenance rounds on Overby Park Drive last Friday morning, Jim Wiggins found a small German Shepherd puppy lying on a grass lawn, barely alive.

He tried to comfort the puppy, but it was comatose and did not respond. So, Jim called Crossroads Animal Hospital, who said they would try to treat him. Jim wrapped the puppy in an old towel, put it in the seat of his pickup truck, and took it to Crossroads, off Highway 34, where they were waiting for him.

They tried to treat and stabilize the puppy’s condition, but were unable. The puppy died Friday night. The hospital ruled out snake bite, poison and being hit by a car. The apparent reason for death was head trauma, a blow to the head. How very, very sad.

We posted signs, but no one has responded. How very, very sad. But we wish to commend Jim Wiggins and Crossroads Animal Hospital for their chivalrous, gracious efforts to care for this unfortunate puppy. We offer them a sincere “Thank you!”
