Hello Blue Grass Family and Friends,
This morning this German Shepherd was found, what appears to be abandoned in Blue Grass. This furbaby was accompanied by a large bag of dog food in the ditch.
The dog was too frightened to hop in the police car, so officers had to call for assistance. The department explains:
We had no choice but to call our friends at the Humane Society of Scott County animal control to help us safely bring her/him to a safe place.
The police are hoping that someone will recognize the dog and provide them with more information. Chief Jahns writes:
