Good samaritans in Summerville help save dog's life

Posted: Updated:
SUMMERVILLE, SC - It's a happy ending for a dog in Summerville, after he was accidentally hit by a car. He survived and went home from the pet hospital yesterday. 

Today, the good samaritans that stopped to save his life met for the first time. 
Today Elizabeth Carroll and her family got to meet the people who saved their dog's life, Chris Strimple and Cpl. Lewis Judy for the first time. 

Carroll says it all happened last Wednesday evening when the wind blew open their door, and Jackson escaped.
Jackson was accidentally hit by Chris Strimple, who immediately turned around to help him.

She then called her best friend, who happens to be a veterinarian, Dr. Stacey Bostian. 
Bostian called her vet tech, Amber to help.

At the same time, Cpl. Lewis Judy was dispatched to the area. He helped the ladies get Jackson to the hospital.

Bostian and Strimple went on social media to find his family. Luckily, the Carroll's had posted an ad for their missing dog.

Elizabeth Carroll says she received a call shortly after praying Jackson would make it home.
"She said I found your dog but I need you to call me and I knew then that he had probably been hit by a car."

Dr. Bostian says, "Jackson will do well with 8 weeks of rest and basically the bones will heal on it’s own and hopefully he won’t have to have surgery and that’s the plan for him, everything is going well for him so far.."

 Dr. Bostian recommends getting a microchip implanted in your dog. She says that would have helped her find Jackson’s family a lot sooner. 
The Carroll family had Jackson microchipped before he left to go home from the hospital.
