A car hit a dog and drove away without stopping to check on the animal. Then, a man who witnessed the whole thing did something so heartwarming.
The man who witnessed the hit and run, Eric, ran to the dog to check on it and immediately called Solano County Sheriff’s Animal Control for help. He then sat next to the dog on the ground to pet and comfort him until help arrived.
In the Solano County Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook post, they said, “A deputy found Eric lying on the ground, in the rain comforting the injured dog. Eric stayed by the dog’s side until Animal Control came and took the dog to the emergency pet clinic.”
The sheriff’s department was extremely touched by what Eric did for the dog. “We would like to thank Eric for not looking the other way and driving by,” they wrote. “He went above and beyond to help this injured dog. Please share and help us thank Eric.”
Unfortunately, the dog later passed away at the hospital, but thanks to Eric he was not left alone or without love and compassion in his last moments before crossing the Rainbow Bridge.
