A young Arkansas girl gives up a trip to Disney to save an injured dog. Her dog surely would have died if the girl and her mother didn't happen by in the nick of time. Katelynn Zoellner explains what happened. Patience's dog Brownie is expected to make a full recovery. Eight-year-old Patience Lemly said she found her dog, Brownie, lying on the road after he was ran over by a car. "I saw him lift his head up and my mama noticed," Patience said. "She said it and I bursted out crying." Brownie suffered severe swelling to the brain from the hit. Patience said seeing her dog hurt was heart-breaking. "He has a strong head," she said. "He's my baby. I don't want to lose him." Patience said Brownie is not the first dog to be ran over in the area she lives. "I've had two other dogs that have got hit and died," she said. "I don't want that to happen again." Patience made an appointment with Johnson County Sheriff Jimmy Dorney to talk about speeding issues. Dorney says he was impressed by the way Patience stood up for what she believed in. "It just shocked me that she sat across the desk from ne and talked to me like an adult," he said. "She stated the facts plain and simple. This is what happened and this is the help that she needed." Patience helped pay for Brownie's vet bill using money she was saving for a Dinsey trip and college fund, something Dorney said was very touching. "I hated that she had to go through that with her dog," he said. So the sheriff's department donated $85 to help Patience cover the cost of the bill. "We were very glad to be able to help her get some of that back and do that for her cause she's a good girl," the sheriff said. Patience's dog Brownie is expected to make a full recovery.
