the original owner should be tied to the bumper and dragged down the road!

Love to hear if they ever caught who did that-sick and inhumane. I really would love to see them caught and then drag them for a bit--just to get a perspective....

I remember hearing this on the national TV news. I am happy to hear he is being rewarded with 20 prospective new parents

I wouldn't have a problem tying the guy to a bumper and letting him see just how it feels. What a horrible thing to do.

How ANYone can do this sort of thing to an animal is absolutely beyond me. They have to be incapable of feeling positive feelings, and there is no use for them on this earth.

I wish all shelter dogs could get the kind of press that generates a waiting list. They all have a story. Wonder if the people who are turned away will adopt another shelter pet.

I am glad to see the dog did not die that is a tragic way to get hurt I can not believe they did not get the license plates of the vehicle dragging him too bad.

I hope they punish the creep that hurt the poor dog. I'm glad he will be adopted and recover from his ordeal. People always line up to adopt animals with horror stories like this one, but I wish they would also consider any animal in a shelter as a special needs animal who needs a loving home.

I hope stories like this will bring good publicity to shelter dogs and cats. People might come by, before going to the mall pet stores.

Good job with the recovery and hopefully the people that don't get to adopt him will adopt the other dogs at the shelter.

Once again, I am somewhat disturbed by the number of people who come forward to adopt a marginally famous animal. I am willing to bet that there are plenty of animals in shelters in the Atlanta area for all 20 applicants to go home with a pet. It's good Sparky will get a home but what of the other animals. Will the other 19 applicants or at least the ones that are deemed good adopters look at other animals?

Once they find him I hope they give him a $10,000 fine for the reward! That is horrible what that dog had gone through, but I hope the shelter finds a great companion for him that will take care of him. I hope there is an update on him!!!My prayers go out to this little puppy!

I'll never understand how someone can "forget" that they tied a dog to their car or truck. Actually I don't even understand why you would do that to begin with.

That guy will be caught sooner or later doing some other despicable act. People that cruel don't stop, they escalate! I am so happy that poor dog found a good home. I cannot imagine the suffering he went through, and then to maintain a positive, loving attitude through it all! We could all take some lessons from the animal kingdom!

I hope they catch this guy before he hurts someone else; however it seems unlikely at this point. I don't understand how someone can be so cruel. There are a lot of options if you don't want a dog any longer, tying him to the back of a truck and driven down the road shouldn't even cross someone's mind.

If some son of a bitch deliberately tied Sparky to a truck and dragged him down a highway, they deserve to be punished, punished BADLY. If someone "merely" forgot he was there, that person is purely an ass. Whatever really happened, the tough pooch is sure to end up in a safer and happy place.

So glad to hear that Sparky is being overrun with adoption applications. He deserves a great home after his ordeal. Poor thing had no idea what was happening to him. I hope they capture the dirtbag who did this to him.
