Community continues helping abused dog

July 27, 2006

Albany -- A badly abused dog is getting a lot of help from the community.

A few weeks ago someone abandoned this cocker spaniel now known as CoCo behind the Albany Humane Society. The bones in her right hind leg were exposed, and it had to be amputated.

CoCo is recovering nicely, and today a good samaritan came forward to try to fit the dog with a prosthetic leg. "My daughter-in-law, she's a huge animal lover, and she's seen the story on ALB and she called me up and said, 'Jim please can you go see if you can make that doggy a leg?' Well like absolutely you know any project like that I love the challenge," said Jim Young.

Unfortunately so much of Coco's leg had to be amputated, there's no way she could be fitted with a prosthetic leg.

Coco has been adopted, but she needs to recover a little more from her injuries before her new family takes her home.
