A Boston man was saved by his eight-year-old beagle mix, Lucy, after the pair were struck by a speeding hit-and-run-driver. Though she was injured, Lucy limped to a nearby dentist’s office for help. When someone noticed her barking outside, she went back to her owner, and refused to leave his side.

Lucy’s injury were later deemed more serious later on. Her leg is scheduled to undergo surgery tomorrow, Dec. 13th, the bill of which will cost $5,000.
