    Not sure exactly what street but some jerk hit my friend’s 88 pound Doberman last night and than took off. She said it was a silver S.U.V. and her street is a dead-end plus the dude was speeding. Shame on you for taking off! It is bad enough that you hit him but take responsibility for it!

    Please explain how a large dog on a leash was hit by a car – in the street. Did the car run up onto the sidewalk? Or was the dog being walked in the street?

    I have an enormous amount of compassion for the one (and only) victim here – the dog. All the petty insults and name calling in the world won’t change that.

    What is the rest of the story? Find out who did it? Was the dog on leash?

    I understand Sistah’s rant, but I’m wondering what anyone should reasonably expect the motorist to do in that situation. Was the dog still laying in the street after? Or did it run off.

    .

    If the dog was still in the street, is the motorist expected to risk being bitten by an 88lb dog in an attempt to get the injured dog who doesn’t know them into their vehicle to take them to a Vet?

    .

    If the dog ran off – is the motorist expected to drive around looking for the dog and risk the same situation as above?

    .

    Without being inflamitory, what reaction would you like to see?

    Just like any accident you stop to see if you can assist. At the very least, start knocking on doors to see if anyone knows whose dog it is.

    The dog was injured. It needed help–whether on a leash or not.
