Animal Control officers said they didn't even notice anything was wrong until somebody physically flagged him down near an intersection where a pit bull mix, named Goliath, was dragged for three miles down Meadowlake Road.

According to investigators the dog had been tied to a truck when the driver took off.

"The animal was thrown in the truck because he was in a hurry to get somewhere," Jaramillo said. "The dog had no chance."

The dog's owner, Nick Varela said his friend Michael was driving the truck said there is more to the story.

"My buddy had gotten an emergency phone call from his fiancée and he could not get the chain off so he threw the dog in the back of the truck," Varela said.

Nick said reason the dog was chained up in the first place is because he had just rescued another dog and the two had been fighting.

When he heard the news, Nick said he was devastated.

"I was heart broken. I saved that dog's life when he was a puppy," Varela said.

Varela said he does not agree with the charges of extreme animal cruelty his friend faces.

"It's nothing like that. It was an extreme accident," Varela said.

Whether or not it was an accident, Nick said he now only has the memories of his dog Goliath.

"He used to ride in the truck with me everywhere. He was always by my side. He was a good dog," Varela said.

More information about the driver of the truck will be released Wednesday when the sheriff's office makes their report public...

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
