Georgia authorities are asking for the public's help in solving a case of animal cruelty.
Last Thursday afternoon witnesses saw a car dragging a dog whose leash was attached to the rear bumper of a car.
"People saw this dog being dragged from the bumper of the car," said Judy Price of Atlanta Pet Rescue.
After the dog slipped out of its collar, a Good Samaritan who saw the dog's plight stopped to help the injured pooch.
The dog is now being cared for at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic, where the staff has nicknamed the terrier mix Sparky - they said that despite losing the pads, skin, and nails on all four of his paws, the dog still has a sweet disposition.
They said it will take months for Sparky's wounds to heal.
