CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. — A small puppy has a new chance to find his forever home after a Cherokee County deputy found the small dog abandoned over the weekend.
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said Deputy Hart found the puppy left alone at a homeless camp off Hwy 92 near I-75, Sunday. Officials said the dog was left there with no food or water, and Hart swooped in to rescue the puppy from a "bad situation."
The sheriff's office said the dog will get the care it needs at the Cherokee County Animal Shelter, and when it is healthy enough, they hope to find him a new home.
The sheriff's office wrote in a Facebook post for people to "keep an eye on the Cherokee Animal Shelter’s Facebook page" for word on when the pup is ready for adoption.
