A two-month-old puppy recovering from being tossed out of a moving vehicle in Kaufman County takes her first steps Thursday after undergoing surgery on her back legs.
"It's crazy that they can go through the things they go through, and be just as loving as they were before it ever happened," said veterinary technician Justin Marksberry.
The puppy, now named Charlee, is recovering well from surgery last Friday.
Marksberry was on hand for the operation.
"The top of her femur was broken off right where femur meets the knee cap, a clean break across both sides," he explained. "We attached the kneecap and whole top area back to the top of the femur."
On Thursday, Charlee took her first steps and even ran across the clinic's backyard. We are told her prognosis looks great.
"It's gonna be sad to see her go," said Marksberry.
The pup will go back to a Kaufman County rescue group next week and will soon be adopted. The group said several applications have been fully filled out, and there has been a lot of interest.
Applicants will be screened before she's adopted.
