On Friday, May 28 around 9:20 p.m, my little black and white Boston Terrier escaped my yard and bolted into the darkness. After searching for him for about 20 minutes on foot and by car, a call was received that he ran into oncoming traffic on Route 119 in Groton.

My sincere thanks and gratitude goes out to the driver who not only did the right thing and notified the police, but also moved the dog out of the road and stayed with him until help arrived. I also want to thank the two females who stopped at the accident site to nurture and calm the dog down. I would like to thank the Groton Police for their timely arrival and reporting of the accident to me and for their compassion. Dr. Quinn and Dr. Bailey of the Animal Emergency Care Hospital in Acton have addressed his trauma and stabilized him, thank you. He is currently receiving orthopedic surgery and utmost care at Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Care of New England in Waltham. It is expected that he will be home in a few days to continue to recovery.

I wish to extend my thanks and deepest gratitude to all who had an influential role in saving my dog’s life.
