BRODIE THE CANINE HERO
Don and Teresa Whitaker of Worth County are among the great number of animal lovers in this county. A few months ago they welcomed a very special yellow Lab to their family, but did not realize just how incredible this guy is until a week ago.
The couple have owned their inside dog, Heidi, for over 12 years. She is a Dachshund and for the most part stays very close to her family.
She is typically let out throughout the day for a bathroom break and at night before bed. It happened to be cold a few nights last week. “She’s getting older and doesn’t like the cold,” Don said of Heidi.
Last Tuesday night, she went for her last outside break before turning in for the night. Teresa went to call her in, but Heidi didn’t answer. The couple said she sometimes likes to stay outdoor’s and play a bit but would always respond when called.
Don said he was at work when Teresa called him upset because she was unable to find Heidi. It was already after midnight when he arrived home from work but he began to search for Heidi, unfortunately to no avail. They began to notice evidence that led them to believe Heidi may have been attacked by another dog. Their concerns became even greater at that point. That evening being particularly cold made for a restless and worrisome night for the couple who consider Heidi ‘their baby’.
They were awakened Wednesday morning by Brodie who was barking non-stop outside.
“I go outside and I hear him barking but I can’t see him,” Don said. “The barking was coming from a cotton field out to the side of the house. I walk out there but I can’t see him because the cotton was so high.”
He went deeper into the field to try and locate Brodie who continued barking, apparently determined to not abandon his location.
Brodie sees his owner from where he is sitting in the field, “And he’s just barking for me to come to him,” Don said.
“When I got to him, my Dachshund was just laying there and almost dead, she was not responsive or anything… She had bled so much from the attack, she was in shock. She didn’t even know it when I picked her up.”
Heidi was rushed to Veterinarian Dr. Charles Land in Sylvester and it was still unclear if she would survive from her extensive injuries. She remained at the animal clinic overnight.
Dr. Land said Heidi’s story is a remarkable one. At first appearance, he was unsure the little dog was alive. She had several puncture wounds, severe hip and leg wounds and was covered with dirt which was deep into the wounds as well. The process of warming Heidi began as well as IV fluids and continuous treatment. “It’s amazing that little dog, over about six hours, just started reviving nicely,” Dr. Land said. “I mean she is a miracle dog. She was doing unbelievably well by the next day.”
Because of significant skin loss and muscle damage to her back legs, several follow-up visits to Dr. Land is still necessary. She is under constant care and closely monitored at home, but healing well according to Don. “It’s amazing she is walking a well as she is,” Dr Land said a week from the date Heidi arrived at his clinic.
“I’m really proud of how she’s snapped back, ” Don said. “She is a tough little dog.”
Don and Teresa got their heroic Brodie from a relative and he is about a year old. “He’s as smart as he can be,” Don said.
“I just thought that it was amazing that dog went out there and found [Heidi] and sat out there and barked for 30 minutes till we came out there to see what he wanted.”
“I’ve heard stories about dogs doing stuff like that,” Don said referring to Brodie’s actions. “I was so proud of him because it’s almost like losing a child – not knowing where Heidi was. We knew something had to be wrong.”
“We’ve still got this dog because Brodie went out and found her and let us know where she was at… I’m – I’m just so proud of him.”
Pictured below is Don and Teresa along with their grandson Dawson, Heidi and Brodie. They are in front of the recently harvested cotton field where Brodie located his injured canine friend.

On Nov. 12, Worth County residents will have the opportunity to vaccinate their dogs against rabies quickly and conveniently – for free.
“This Saturday, the Worth County Health Department and Best Friends Humane Society are partnering with local veterinarians Drs. Allan Gardner, Charles Land and Carie Wisell to provide rabies clinics at two sites in the county,” said Worth County Health Department Environmental Health Specialist Laura Searcy.
Since the free vaccine is limited, only dogs will be vaccinated during the clinics, and owners may bring two dogs only, Searcy said. Seventy-five doses will be available at each location.
“All dogs must be crated or on a leash,” she said. “Only Worth County residents are eligible to receive the vaccinations for their animals, so be prepared to show proof of residency, such as your driver’s license or a utility bill showing your address.”
The morning clinic is scheduled from 9 a.m. – noon at the Old Train Station in downtown Sylvester.
The afternoon clinic is scheduled from 2 – 5 p.m. at Worthy Manor Fire Station off of Jewel Crowe Road-Doles Road.
Rabies is a dangerous disease that can be transmitted from animals to humans. Georgia law requires all dogs and cats to be vaccinated against rabies each year, said Searcy.
“Puppies and kittens over 16 weeks are required to be vaccinated,” she said. “Pets that aren’t wearing up-to-date rabies tags are subject to impoundment.”
The vaccinations are vital because rabies is in Georgia’s wild animal population. Strays and feral animals can also harbor the rabies virus, Searcy said.
“Anyone bitten by wild animals or strays should seek immediate medical treatment,” Searcy said. “You should not attempt to pet, catch, play with or keep as a pet any wild animal.”
It isn’t unusual to see positive cases occasionally inWorthCountyor elsewhere in the 14-county Southwest Health District. “We have had raccoons test positive for rabies here before,” she said. “But they are not the only wild animal in the area known to carry the disease. Other carriers include skunks, bats, foxes, bobcats and coyotes.”
For more information about the upcoming rabies clinic, call 777-2168.

UPDATE Wednesday 11/2/11: Worth County Coroner Johnny Johnson said today the identity of the 69-year old female killed in last night’s accident is Patricia Buchanan of Albany. Officials report Buchanan pulled out into the path of the oncoming truck at the intersection. Buchanan would have been 70 on her birthday this Saturday Johnson said.
On a brighter note, good reports have been received regarding Buchanan’s dog, Nikki, who was in the vehicle during the crash. Rescue officials comforted the dog in the wrecked vehicle at the scene. She did not move and appeared to be in shock until Animal Control arrived on scene and transported her to emergency care in Sylvester. She remains at the Sylvester Animal Hospital. Animal Control Officer Sherri Hendley said today Nikki is improving. She believes there may be some broken ribs involved but is very optimistic regarding the dog’s recovery. Donations to the Sylvester Animal Hospital towards the medical treatment of Nikki would be greatly appreciated. Contact the facility at (229) 776-3923.
