Dr. Andy Mathis only did what any person with a sense of compassion toward an animal in need would do - he climbed into her cage to feed her.
Graycie Claire's story up until this heartwarming moment is even more incredible.
She came to Granite Hill Hospital Care (GHAC) in Elberton, Georgia, on the night of Friday, January 29. Someone had called GHAC to say they found the stray pit bull alone on a dirt road.
However, the person had no resources to take care of her and didn't know where to take her. Since local animal control wasn't open late, Mathis, a veterinarian at GHAC, told the good Samaritan to bring the dog in, knowing that he may have to euthanize her depending on her condition - and she was undoubtedly in rough shape as detailed in a Facebook post.
