When one woman crashed her car on a country road, the force of the impact knocked her out. As she came round, though, she felt something licking her face. And when she opened her eyes, she saw the culprit: a mysterious stray dog by her side.
Shannon Lorio was born and raised in South Georgia and in 2007 was living in the area with her husband. “It’s basically a quiet area,” she said of her home in a 2010 interview with television show Heroes Among Us. “Everybody kinda sticks to themselves.”
Plus, the region has a lot of open roads on which to escape when the desire arises. Indeed, Lorio liked nothing more than taking off in her car sometimes. “The roads are real curvy [and] winding,” she explained. “And there’s a lot of woods.”
