puppy paw

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- A woman came across a puppy who appeared to have suffered from severe wounds Tuesday morning.

She immediately transported the dog to a local veterinarian in Buckhead.


According to a veterinarian at Village Vets of Buckhead, after examining the dog they believe it was thrown out of a moving vehicle due to the abrasions on its abdomen and feet. 

Dr. Alissa Stephens told CBS46 the dog appeared to have suffered from not only new wounds but also old wounds too. The causes of the injuries is unknown at this time. 

“It’s definitely really sad to see when we come in, he has so many wounds, and so much pain, but we got good pain control for him right away, so he was as comfortable as possible before we started working on stabilizing him,” Dr. Stephans said.
