Dog Dragged By Truck Recovering In Palm Beach Gardens

A dog named Destiny, who was dragged a half mile behind a truck two weeks ago in Riviera Beach is recovering in Palm Beach Gardens.   Her elderly owner accidentally dragged her, apparently forgetting she was attached to the lease and the vehicle.  He was eventually stopped by law enforcement, but not before the dog received extensive injuries.  Since he couldn't afford her medical bills, which have added up to about $15,000, he gave up the dog.  He still could potentially face charges, but I would imagine he feels awful. She is being cared for by Veterinarian Dr. Steve Hanson.  Salty Dog, an organization that takes care of animals in need, is helping with the bills.  Glad there are people around like that to take care of her!
