Patience, an 8-year-old girl, was devastated when she found her dog Brownie after he was hit by a car.  Brownie is lucky and will make a full recovery, thanks in part to Patience using her Disney savings to help pay for his vet bills. Patience doesn’t want something like this to happen to any other dogs where she lives so she met with the Johnson County Sheriff in hopes to end speeding in her neighborhood.

Patience found Brownie lying in the road after he had been hit by a car. It was heartbreaking for the young girl.

“I saw him lift his head up on the road and I bursted out crying,” said Patience.

Brownie suffered swelling in his brain from the incident, but is expected to make a full recovery. Patience used the money she had been saving up for a trip to Disney to help pay for Brownie’s treatment.

Patience is relieved that Brownie will recover, but he isn’t the first dog that has been hit by a car where she lives. She is hoping to change that and made an appointment with the Johnson County Sheriff to talk about the speeding problem in her neighborhood.

Sheriff Jimmy Dorney was impressed with Patience and the mature way she handled herself when meeting with him.

“It just shocked me that she sat across the desk from me and talked to me like and adult,” said Dorney. “She stated the facts plain and simple. This is what happened and this is the help she needed.”

Sheriff Dorney was so impressed with Patience he donated $85 to help with Brownie’s veterinary costs.

  1. I’m sorry, this a lovely story and I understand speeding is an issue in many dogs and even humans being injured and sometimes killed by cars. My problem is why was the dog not on a leash? Leashes save lives too.

  2. What a smart and caring young lady. It’s people like her that help bring about change that will save lives. Brownie is a lucky and loved boy!

    As for the reporter in the video, wish she had better grammar for TV. The dog was RUN over not RAN over.
