GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Greensboro police officer has saved a puppy said to have been thrown from a six story window.

The Greensboro News & Record reported that it happened earlier this month at the Heritage House condominiums, a dilapidated, crime-ridden apartment complex.

Officer T.A. Boyer of the Greensboro Police Department had gathered at the Heritage House with other officers to clean the place up.

The puppy was found curled up in the bushes with a scrape across her tummy and weighing just over three pounds.

People said they saw a man drop the dog from the sixth story, but there were no witnesses willing to swear to what they saw.

Boyer asked around Heritage House to find her owner. No one came forward.

Boyer took care of the little brown boxer himself, adopting her and even giving her a name – Reagan.

Now Reagan spends her days as a puppy should: eating, sleeping, growing — she’s up to 10 pounds now.

Four weeks after her fall, and she is well enough to roughhouse with Boyer’s 9-month-old German shepherd.

    glad the puppy has found a good home and a happy life. to the jerk who dropped the puppy may God rain down all kinds of pain on you and yours. to the cowardly witnesses hope you continue to live in your sorry excuses for homes because you deserve nothing better.

    Just another reason why this crime ridden place should be shut down, condemned, and torn down ….
    What have you got to say now, Jennifer, (who “supposedly” owns five units) in that cess pool of a run-down, dilapidated, and crime ridden apartment compex (per Greensboro Daily News). All I can say to you is — you made one horrible investment of your money. You deserve to lose and I hope you do. You remind me of the other slum landlord in our city — Agapion – Look around at the mess he has created in Greensboro.

      @ Jennifer – You, if I remember, was the one who stated on here that you owned 5 units in that crime ridden cesspool of apartment complex … I only made a statement and an observation that many also made the same statement.
      By the way, I was over in that area about lunchtime and ,gee, what did I see – There was the huge Greensboro Crime Unit trailer in the side parking lot with tons of law enforcement present.. Something big getting ready to happen ….. Again, I will state – you sure made a bad investment.
