On the night of Thursday 27th May, a dog was pushed from a moving vehicle and abandoned. That dog was called Savey, and appeared to be a pit bull breed. Savey was abandoned in this awful manner by unknown people.
After Savey had hit the ground and barrel-rolled several times on impact, she immediately got back onto her feet and attempted to catch up to the car containing the abusers that had thrown her from it. She had clearly been desperate to return to the people that had abandoned her.
The offending vehicle was a green Sedan with Kentucky plates, according to witnesses. Two days prior to the reunion the Brown County Humane Society Dog Shelter had notified their network that they had received an old dog by the name of Savey and that Savey had been tragically abandoned at an “old bridge” in Aberdeen, a small village in Huntington Township, Brown County.
On the morning of 28th May 2021, The Brown County Humane Society Dog Shelter had posted to their Facebook page asking for anyone with information to step forward in order to assist them with locating Savey’s abandoners.
This fateful Facebook post had been exactly what her original owner needed in order to find their lost fur baby. Savey had been missing for over a year, when her original owner, Ron Colligan, had seen her photograph and immediately rushed to the shelter to see her and check that his mind wasn’t playing tricks on him.
In a follow-up post celebrating Savey’s safe return home, the shelter had begun by saying “If you don’t believe in miracles. Maybe you should….” The Brown County shelter then went on to explain how Savey had been a very good dog since her arrival on the evening of her abandonment but was also “understandably shook up and depressed.”
Colligan had been able to describe details of the pooch that only a loving owner would know, like old scars and birthmarks. He had owned her since she was a puppy, and had watched her grow until she went missing.
According to the shelter, Savey had immediately recognized Colligan. The second she had entered the hallway of the lobby, she had instantly begun to pull, scrabble and jump in excitement, trying her best to get to him as quickly as possible. The shelter described her reaction as their once “sad depressed girl” had very quickly become “happy wiggly and overjoyed to see her person.”
They ended the heartwarming post by saying that they would be lying if they said a few tears hadn’t been shed there that day. Following that up with thanks to Savey for being their “miracle”. The reunion post had been topped off with a happy photograph of Savey sat alongside her owner, ready to go home.
A spokesperson for the Brown County Humane Society Dog Shelter spoke with Fox News following up on the story. They told the news outlet that Savey is now happily settling down with her loving family, saying that she definitely “seems very relieved to be home”. They also commented in regards to the investigation, stating that the society’s Humane Agents are still looking into who threw Savey from the green Sedan in the first place.
Any and all information pertaining to this investigation would be greatly appreciated. If you or someone you know has information that may help to solve Savey’s case, please contact the shelter on 937-378-3457 and quote the case date 5/27/2021.
