COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The dog of a Columbus homeless man who was found dead over the weekend needs a new home.

Sassy is the dog of William Edwards, a man brutally murdered early Sunday morning.

Friends of Edwards say Sassy has been traumatized and was the kind of dog that never left her owner’s side.

"I think it would need to be somebody that has a lot of patience and a lot of understanding for a dog that has seen a lot of trauma and been through a lot trauma and been separated from their owner,” said Farah Halford, a friend of Edward’s. “I mean they were friends for a very long time."

Those who are interested in adopting Sassy can call the 2nd Avenue Animal Hospital at (706) 507-7297.

The coordinators of the outreach ministry Group of Dudes, who are helping Sassy find a home, say she has heartworms and they are raising money to treat her. 

Her heartworm treatment will cost $400 and donations can be taken to the 2nd Avenue Animal Hospital.
