Tonight December 12, 2012 at approx. 8 pm my family dog Zeus a rescued Golden Retriever, only 3 years old, had escaped off his chain, I dont even know how I have a secure chain. Both my children and I ran after him, trying to catch him, when he was hit by a cab driver who works for Satellite Taxi in Lower Sackville Cab # 238. Zeus went right under the car. The cab driver DIDNT even stop, he saw my children and myself looking and calling to the dog! he ran over Zeus right in front of us, and drove off!
I then rushed Zeus to the emerg. vet clinic in Dartmouth, were they have assessed he will need surgery on his jaw, as his gums have been torn and his k-9 tooth is damaged, he needs x-rays and much more vet care!
I am asking anyone out of the kindness of their hearts please help us save our wonderful family dog! My kids and I would be forever grateful in any generosity you can spare this time of year!
I have also contacted the RCMP as the driver did fail to remain at the scene of an accident and he caused unnecessary suffering to an animal and needs to be brought to justice!
Thank you in advance, Lyndsay and children
