Miracle dog hit twice, lives

By Jena Johnson - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV)- A six pound Miniature Doberman Pinscher was run over at least twice in just a matter of minutes Tuesday morning. The little dog is now going by the name Lucky by his rescuer, who also happens to be Smith County District Attorney Matt Bingham.

"He could have been killed. Probably very, very lucky," said Dr. Jeff Lancaster, owner of Tyler Veterinary Center.

Hooked up to an IV, Lucky the Miniature Pinscher, is pulling through after several cars trampled over him.

Tuesday Morning, Lucky was not in good shape when District Attorney Matt Bingham came to his rescue.

"It was such a little object as you're driving up on it that you really don't know what it is and then as you see it kicking and trying to roll then you're like oh my gosh it has been hit and it's still alive and in pain," said Bingham.

As Bingham was trying to direct traffic around the dog, it was hit for the second time. This time, Bingham says he didn't think it was going to make it.

"I was able to get the dog pick it up put it back into my truck and spin around and head to my vet," he said.  "I felt so good once I got there."

Veterinarian Jeff Lancaster says Lucky had severe head trauma and lots of bruising.

"It's just unbelievable that nothing got fractured especially getting hit three or four times," said Lancaster.

Now Lucky just needs to find his owner to share his story of survival.

"If not, if the dog is never claimed then maybe someone else will adopt it and give it a home," said Bingham. "It's an awful sweet dog."

Lucky is about one year old, has a blue collar and was recently neutered. If you think he's your lost dog, call Tyler Veterinary Center at (903)-581-2070.
