Soldier and Second Chance Dogs to visit Saturday

A soldier and the stray dog who saved the lives of 50 guardsmen in Afghanistan will visit the courthouse Saturday, Sept. 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with his grooming van as part of the Second Chance Dogs adoption on the square. Sometimes giving someone a second chance can mean so much. If Sgt. Chris Duke had not befriended the hungry mutts near his base in Afghanistan, many soldiers may have lost their lives to the suicide bomber who was attacked by the dogs outside their barracks. Lisa Ramos has given hundreds of dogs a second chance by taking them in, having them fixed and finding a family to adopt them. Recently a state agency has required that she remove at least 30 of the dogs she has housed in shaded kennels on her property. Some of those dogs will be up for adoption Saturday on the courthouse square. For details on adopting a dog, call Ramos at 770-884-9620.
