Andra Grace - Dog dragged behind truck in Marietta

GREENVILLE, S.C. – A young pit bull mix is recovering from injuries she suffered after reportedly being dragged on a rope behind a truck last week in Marietta.

Witnesses told investigators with Greenville County Animal Control they saw someone in an older-model, Andra Grace - Dog dragged behind truck in Mariettawhite pickup dragging the 12-month-old puppy near the intersection of Hart Cut and Wildwood roads.

Now known as Andra Grace, the puppy suffered serious injuries to her legs and paws. She is being treated at Upstate Veterinarian Specialists, an animal hospital in Greenville, and has been adopted by the Northeast Chapter of Special Needs Animal Rescue Rehabilitation, a rescue group that works to save dogs with tough medical conditions.

The chapter has created a Facebook page, "Justice for Andra Grace," in the hopes of finding the person who was driving the vehicle. The page has swelled in popularity, having already garnered more than 25,000 likes. A donation page that was started to raise funds for Andra Grace's treatment is approaching its goal of $10,000.

A $2,000 reward is being offered by STARR Northeast for anyone with information that leads to an arrest. If you have information, please call Crime Stoppers at (864) 23-CRIME.
