A Georgia man was charged August 27 after his dog tested positive for methamphetamine while being treated for an undetermined illness, Washington Times News reported August 28.
Marty Allen Rogers, 47, of Talmo thought his terrier mix dog Little Guy was sick. On August 17, Rogers took Little Guy to an animal clinic in Hoschton where an examination was conducted by veterinarian Kevin Chapman. Luckily Dr. Chapman noticed something was “off” about Little Guy, who had been panting and pacing while at the clinic. A urine test came back positive for methamphetamine in the dog’s system.
According to a report by WYFF4 News
, Sheriff’s Capt. Rich Lott stated deputies worked with Jackson County Animal Control to obtain a warrant charging Rogers with animal cruelty. A search of the home turned up meth inside of Mr. Roger’s, along with a stolen motorcycle from South Carolina. Additional charges for possession of meth and theft by receiving stolen property were made.
Jackson County Animal Control officer John Deltoro reported Thursday that Little Guy is doing great and is being adopted into a new home. A sample is being sent to an expert to verify the dog had ingested meth. Click here for past arrest of Rogers.
