Golden Retriever Service Dog killed in hit and run accident!

I really hope they catch the sick, twisted individual who did this…

Near Barstow and Broadway around 9:45 Friday night, a Golden Retriever service dog was struck and killed by a hit and run motorist in Waukesha, Wisconson.  This seriously troubles me.

According to  MSNBC.com Debbie Shultz was taking a walk with her service dog Lexie, and attempted to cross the street, when a  cream or light colored 1993-1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with plates containing the numbers “22.”  struck and killed the dog and crushed Debbie’s foot.  The vehicle is likely to have damage to the passenger side.

Lexie was a gift from Debbie’s late husband four days before he was killed in a car accident. Lexie  helped Debbie with her anxiety. “He was really the only family I had after my husband left, my kids are all grown up, and she’s all I had,” said Schultz.

P.S.  I would love to see a picture of Lexie….
