Our rescue puppy, Latte, jumped out of our minivan at an intersection in our village's downtown. She was caught under and dragged by a car that swung around not knowing she was loose. She ran off and was missing for an hour. We found her in an alley under a dumpster with some road rash, small cuts, and a gash on her leg. She was treated overnight and is upset and uncomfortable but otherwise in better shape than she could have been.


This same dog survived being thrown from a moving car on a highway in Kentucky along with her sister six months ago. Someone found them soon after and took them to be treated. They were moved to downstate Illinois as it's a no-kill state and were placed in the foster system. Eventually, she found her forever home with us.
