COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Meet Columbo – a stray dog who was hit by a car and now has a forever home.
On July 10, Jarrett Little was biking near Oxbow when a five-month-old Great Dane mixed puppy ran up to him hungry and thirsty. Little gave him water and an entire pack of energy chews.
"He actually wasn't mine as we found him while riding and could tell he needed help. He'd been hit by a car days before and needed some surgery," Little said.
Little ended up riding him into town hoping to find some help. He eventually came across a nice lady, Andrea Shaw, right after going downtown.
"She took him in and to the vet and paid his medical bills and everything he needed pins in his hip and some other things," he said.
Shaw was only in Columbus for a business trip and she returned home with Columbo last week.
"She named him Columbo because he came into her life in Columbus."
Since Shaw took him in she provided an update on Facebook following his surgery:
