(CBS46) -- A team of UGA researchers are expanding water testing efforts after a local dog who swam in the Chattahoochee River died earlier this year.
Dog mom Ally Love says she’s heard the reports of a dog named Chewy dying on January 24 after playing in the Chattahoochee River.
“I’ve heard a little bit about it and that it’s killed a dog but my dogs love to swim so I let them get it in,” said Love. In a matter of minutes after entering the water, Chewy began to show signs of a fatigue, panting and coughing. “Don’t know what that dog had or if it was sick or not you know…” said Love.
Love told CBS46 News that she will take precautions, but refuses to stop one of the activities her dogs love most. “ I don’t want to be in steeled with fear I want them to live life I want to live life,” said Love.
