Seyaugry Ruffins, not knowing that her husband tied the lead of their nine month old pitbull, Bosco, to the hitch of their pick-up truck the night before after he got loose, took the truck for work and drove halfway across town from her house off Jewella Avenue, down Interstate 20 and to her job in Shreve City, dragging the dog behind her.

She didn’t know about it until she was pulled over by the police at East Kings Highway and Youree Drive after another motorist called 911 on their cellphone.

“He said to me, “Do you know you have a dog hanging on the back of your truck?’ Ruffins said. “And I said, ‘What?’ When I got out, it’s like somebody hit me; my legs gave way.”

She and he husband both face charged of animal cruelty through negligence. On top of that they are also facing charges stemming from how the other pit bulls at their home are kept, breeding without a permit, no proper enclosure and no rabies shots. They could face a fine of up to $500 on each charge.
