Animal Control now has information from credible witnesses in the case of a South Carolina dog dragged by a truck, Facebook reported December 4.
Here's an update on the case, along with the incredible rescue of several of Andra Grace's puppies.
Things moved quickly beginning on December 3 when volunteers Michael and Kendra went out on foot in the Marietta area. They handed out flyers and spoke to many people in the area. It took only minutes to find two eyewitness accounts and the abuser was named.
All of the information gathered was passed along to Animal Control, who is working hard with local law enforcement towards an arrest of the person responsible. The case has been handed over to those who can make this happen, hopefully soon.
Through all of the media coverage, including social media, Andra Grace's former owner came forward to fill in the gaps. Andra Grace was once known as Dixie. She is 12 months old and had a litter of seven puppies on October 28. Vets in charge of her treatment believed she had recently given birth.
Those with SNARR, who are responsible for Andra Grace's care, has managed to track down and rescue three of the pups through tips that came in. The other four had been sold.
One of the pups, the runt, is very sick and at a local emergency clinic overnight. This baby tested negative for Parvo, but suffered from vomiting and has bloody diarrhea and has a very low body temperature.
All of the pups recovered are being treated for hookworms, coccidia and whipworms. Everything is being done to help the puppies survive.
Andra Grace's former owner had entrusted a "friend" to care for the pit bull after being told she couldn't take a pit bull with her to her new housing. This friend either abandoned the dog, or sold her. That's when the monster who tortured her obtained this sweet girl.
SNARR Northeast, the rescue taking responsibility for Andra Grace's care, imagined a wonderful reunion between this mother dog and her pups. Her vets have discouraged this scenario, saying Andra Grace has suffered extensive damage to her mammary glands. The stress of wanting to nurse her puppies, but being unable to, would create too much stress.
SNARR has also made the following statement on Andra's Facebook page as to when an arrest is made
"Please understand the following: We will NOT post the name, details and info of the person responsible. If/when an arrest is made ( which it will be), we will let the news and local papers be the ones to release the information."
The rescue is offering a reward for any of the remaining puppies. Since Marietta is a small area, it's hoped they're still in the area. Anyone with information is asked to contact SNARR at email@example.com.
A followup article on Examiner will be written once an arrest has been made. Should a credible media source provide information it will be given within that article.
