Puppy Thrown From Moving Car Gets a Second Chance at Life


 A three-month-old puppy left for dead is now thriving in his new home thanks to the kindness of an Albany police officer, Jon-David Hill.

According to NEWS10, on Halloween night, two women walked into the police station. One of them was cradling an injured puppy.

“He was quivering; he was afraid; he didn’t know what was going on,” Hill said. “And they told us – myself and my partner who was at the desk – that they found the dog on Central Avenue surrounded by a group of people. When they asked the people what happened, they said they had seen somebody toss the dog from a moving car.”

The puppy was left to die, and animal control couldn’t help the Pitbull/Great Dane mix.

NEWS10 says Officer Hill had an instant bond with the puppy who he named Jack. Hill took the puppy to a local animal hospital. 

Jack’s medical bills are nearing $4,000. But two weeks later, he is recovering nicely at his new home thanks to the man who gave him a second chance.

The Albany Police Animal Abuse Unit is investigating Jack’s case. Meanwhile, almost 200 people have donated to a GoFundMe page dedicated to covering his medical bills.
