COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) -

A dog, orphaned after his owner was murdered, has a new home in Colquitt County. 

Biscuit belonged to Jordan Croft, one of the five friends shot and killed inside a home on Rossman Dairy Road

Lissie Hargraves got Biscuit six years ago. But it didn't take long before Hargraves son's best friend Jordan Croft fell in love with the big guy. 

"He was Jordan's baby," said Hargraves. 

Hargraves gave the dog to Jordan, and the two quickly became inseparable.

"He would ride around. He loved to ride in the front seat of Jordan's Mustang. If Biscuit was riding with Jordan, you rode in the backseat," said Hargraves. 

In May, news broke that Jordan and his four best friends were shot and killed inside this home on Rossman Dairy Road. Biscuit was left without his best friend. 

"At first I couldn't believe it. I just cried and cried and cried," said Hargraves. 

Shortly after, Hargraves said Biscuit ran from Jordan's home, only to be picked up by Animal Control and taken to the Colquitt County Humane Society.

Hargraves found Biscuit's picture on the humane society's Facebook page. 

"I'm like, 'We've got to get him out. We've got to do something,'" said Hargraves.

And last Saturday, she did. She drove from her home in Cairo to Moultrie to pick up Biscuit. 

"They brought him out and I was like, 'Big Bic!'" said Hargraves. 

Lissie said Biscuit misses Jordan. But now that she has Biscuit back, she said she hasn't lost Jordan completely. 

"It's like having a piece of Jordan here because I know how much he loved Biscuit," said Hargraves.

Hargraves said the Humane Society didn't know the dog belonged to Jordan Croft until she called them. And she's so glad she did.
