CUMMING, Ga. — There was a surprise reunion July 2 for a deputy and an injured canine.

Rosemary, the German Shepherd that was dragged by her leash behind a pickup truck by her owner, and Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Lora Hoek were reunited at an event held at PetSmart on Market Place Boulevard in Cumming.

Hoek was one of the first deputies on scene, who rushed Rosemary to nearby Orr Animal Hospital for treatment on June 18.

The driver, who later signed Rosemary over to the county's care, was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.

At the July 2 event, PetSmart presented Paws for a Cause with a $14,000 donation.

Paws for a Cause paid for the spaying procedure for Rosemary and offers multiple programs to help animals in Forsyth County.

The Forsyth County Humane Society is still caring for the renamed Rosemary, a 2-year-old, while she recovers. Rosemary is doing well.

The Humane Society also set up a GoFundMe account, www.gofundme.com/HSFCRosemary for Rosemary. Their goal was $1,000 and by July 3, they had already raised $1,055.
