Beagle Dragged by Truck Recovering at KHS


An 8-year-old beagle is recovering at the Kentucky Humane Society after he was dragged by a truck in Breckinridge County. 

Witnesses saw the dog, now named Dean, being dragged by a truck down a country road. His wounds included road rash and a deep tissue wound to his back right leg. A good Samaritan found him and took him to the vet, who then turned Dean in to the Breckinridge County Animal Shelter.

In addition to these injuries, Dean is heartworm positive and has had chronic ear infections. Dean is currently recovering in a foster home. 

Dean came to KHS through our Love 120 initiative, which aims to help companion animals and improve animal welfare in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties within the next decade. The pilot project is funded by a grant from the Arnall Family Foundation’s WaterShed Animal Fund
