Girl to be buried with dog she died to save
A girl to be buried with dog she was chasing before both of them were struck by a moving car and killed immediately
The 12-year-old Jennarae Nicole Goodbar, and her beloved dog were killed together — and now they will be buried together too, according to the girl’s mom, Donna Jean Stuples.
Goodbar was training Cash when the dog took off onto Route 60 in Rockbridge County, Virginia, USA. The girl made the split-second decision to run after the dog, family members said.
Police are still investigating, but it appears to simply be a tragic accident.
“Goodbar was chasing the family dog when she entered the roadway and was struck by the vehicle,” Virginia State Police Senior Trooper R.E. Tackett said.
Stuples said her daughter was enamored with the dog. “She bought her with her own cash. It was her baby,” she said.
