B.C. Mounties are on the lookout for a hit-and-run driver who struck a family dog but refused to take the dying animal to a veterinarian – for fear of wrecking his upholstery. Kelowna resident Lloyd Manchester was walking his dog of 12 years, Jake, near a local Boys and Girls Club last month when a blue SUV started backing out of a driveway toward them. He tried moving the dog to safety but it was too late; the vehicle crushed Jake’s hip and injured Manchester’s heel in the process. The driver initially stayed at the scene, but refused to lift a finger to help the bleeding pet. “I said, ‘Well, we need to get my dog to a vet,’ ” Manchester told CTV News. “He said, ‘My SUV’s really expensive and it’s got leather interiors, and I’m not putting that dog in my SUV.’ ” Instead, the driver promised to bring a veterinarian back to the scene. He drove off and never came back. “I just think it’s somewhat despicable to leave an injured dog by the side of the road and take off,” said Manchester, who managed to get Jake to a vet with help from a friend. The veterinarian tried operating on the dog the next day, but his internal injuries were too severe. Jake was put down on March 1. “We’re going to miss him… you just can’t replace somebody that you’ve had around that long and consider part of your family,” said Manchester. “He was a very faithful dog.” Manchester was put on crutches for his injured heel, but didn’t suffer any broken bones. Mounties are now asking anyone with information to come forward and help them identify the hit-and-run driver. Const. Kris Clark said Manchester and the man never exchanged information with each other, and authorities only have a few vague details to go on. “Obviously the victim was very traumatized that his dog of 12 years had been struck at the side of the road, and was unable to get the information that we could use to track down the driver,” Clark said. The suspect is described as a 50 to 55-year-old white male with short brown hair. He was driving a blue, newer-model SUV with wide tires. Clark said under the law, pets are considered property, and so the driver will likely only face a fine under the Motor Vehicle Act. Manchester said he hopes to see the driver do the right thing and turn himself in. “Leaving a dog in that kind of shape, saying your vehicle’s more important than an animal,” he said. “Nobody should do that kind of stuff and get away with it.” Anyone with information on the incident can contact the Kelowna RCMP detachment at 250-762-3300.

Lol at turning himself in would just result in a small fine. The guy is in crutches. Hello, personal injury claim?

The dog was an idiot for not getting out of the way and the guy was an idiot for not getting required information on the guy who hit him. At least a licence plate, c'mon. Esp. when you had time to discuss whether or not the guy should drive the bloody dog to the vet. (It was toast regardless.)

The driver who hit the dog is a scumbag. He didn't want the dog getting into his SUV because of the leather interiors. An animal is dying, which is alot more important then some material posession. Further proves what a dick he is by lieing he would get help. If driver is caught, he'll get a slap on the wrist.

What was the owner of the dog doing sitting and waiting around for someone he didnt even know? How much time had he waited? Did he even bother to take any proactive steps? Call a friend? Taxi? Dog owner has no vehicle??

I need more info before I side completely with the dog owner. So far seems like bother parties failed in saving the animal. It's not exactly easy to spot a dog that's running around off leash when you're driving either. Always be in control of your animal or if not be aware of its surroundings.

The best solution for both maybe was to lay some plastic down.

if i was the dog owner as soon as that douchebag said "i have a $70,000 car i don't want to put a dog in it" i would hvae busted his fracking face open, what a complete and utter piece of garbage this guy is. I know people with more expensive cars than that and they take their dogs in them all the time, not a single frack given. Isn't that the point of having leather seats? easier to clean? moron

hope they find this a-hole

The dogs owner said he tried to move him out of the way.Obviously he was going slow possibly due to age.
Even if he didn't see the dog he MUST have seen the owner behind him,yet he still ran over the owners heel as well as the dog.......I know some on here might not have sympathy for the dog,how about if this was your son or daughter? If he didn't see the dog he wouldn't have seen a kid....Your kid ! Anybodies Kid !
There was a boys and girls club close by !!!

The dude was backing out of a driveway...

How hard can it be to find him?

Despicable act. Other animals should always be treated as close to human as possible. Let's go break his hip and leave him on the side of the road.

I hope you get smoked by a car. Then bystanders refuse to drive you to help due to your bleeding and you slowly bleed to death :)

Some of you people are really over the top about dogs and I assume its only because you own one. Not that those rules would apply to any other animals.
