Dog shot in Philadelphia learning to walk again after amputation surgery, PSPCA says
PHILADELPHIA - An innocent dog is getting a second chance at life after a Good Samaritan and local doctors fought to keep her alive.
Alexia the dog was found shot and terrified after crawling onto the porch of a home on the 1200 block of South 54th Street a week ago.
"She was left in the street to die, but was able to drag herself up the steps next to the door of a Good Samaritan and in her own way, ask for help," said Julie Klim, CEO of the Pennsylvania SPCA.
