But she said she doesn't think that can happen. Mitchell said the large ladder truck was speeding down the road when it hit her small Pomeranian Chihuahua. "This, sir, is a 6-and-a-half-pound Pomeranian Chihuahua who was my special needs dog. Everybody in this area knows Pandora," Mitchell said. "They went off and left her. They did absolutely nothing until I called in. When the fire trucks went down, they came back, they left me to pick my dog up and bring her over here dead." The firefighter who was driving the truck told News4Jax the dog "ran out in the road and didn't make it." "She was my companion. She was my best friend. And if that could happen to my dog right there, what say your kids there. There was no reason to be racing down this road," Mitchell said. The driver said he and other firefighters in his unit want to buy Mitchell a new dog, adding that an adoption event is coming up on Dec.
