HCHS manager Sandy Behnke nicknamed the dog "Ghost" when he showed up moments before rescuers were about to give up on him, seemingly appearing out of nowhere.
Hawkins County humane society manager Sandy Behnke and her staff spent hours Wednesday hunting for a "Ghost", but moments before she was about to give up the search, Ghost found her.
"I'm hoping one day I can pet her, but if I can't that's OK. I just want her to have a good home where she doesn't have to be afraid.” — Andrea Stroud
A new Rogersville tethering ordinance that prohibits dogs from being chained outside for more than 12 hours per day was put to use for the first time Friday, resulting in the dog being voluntarily surrendered by the owner.
Hawkins County Humane Society staff named her Pumpkin because of her orange spots, but they may now change her name to Jackie, because it took a heavy duty car jack to lift the shed high enough to get her out.
