City says goodbye to beloved dog

Monday afternoon, nearly 100 people gathered on the court square in Benton, Kentucky to say goodbye to the black and tan pooch commonly known as Benton Dog.

The dog roamed the city’s streets for years until he was hit by a car last Tuesday.

Over time, he became a mascot for the people who came together to take care of him.

Mayor Rita Dotson says Kip Hutchinson at the Marshall County Animal Shelter is taking donations for a monument.

You can contact her at the shelter or though Facebook.
