Dog thrown out truck window now back home

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -    A dog, thrown from the window of a moving truck in Albany, is back home recovering.

Reggie, a young lab mix, spent the last 3 days at Bush Animal Clinic receiving treatment for a broken rib and collapsed lung.

 Someone stole Reggie from Kris Morrill's truck outside the Waffle House on Westover Boulevard Tuesday morning.

 Minutes later a witness saw someone throw the dog from the passenger window of a red Ford Pickup Truck on Westover.

Morrill says the dog is in good spirits.

"He just can't get too excited," said Morrill. "Still has the broken rib obviously.  It's going to take about 4 to 6 weeks to heal.  But everything else seems to be going real well."

 Morrill is offering a $1000 reward to convict whoever hurt Reggie.  

Call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS if you have information.
