Dog dragged behind pickup doing much better, available to adopt

A German shepherd dragged behind a pickup truck, suffering injuries to her feet and abdomen, is mostly healed and ready for adoption, according to the Riverside County Department of Animal Services.

Agency spokesman John Welsh said that, as of this week, 8-month-old “Beauty” is gaining weight and has largely recovered from the July 29 incident that left her with extensive wounds.

“The wounds no longer require bandage changes, but veterinary team members are still applying a topical spray daily,” county veterinarian Dr. Sara Strongin said.
