A new leash on life

(KVOA)  Animal lovers in Tucson, Arizona are rallying to save the life of a stray puppy with major medical problems. The little dog had little hope of surviving but thanks to a caring community he’s getting a second chance at life.

Lt. Dan was named after a character in the movie “Forest Gump”.   He’s just 3-and-half months old and his back legs are paralyzed. Veterinarians say there is a separation in his spine.

According to Alex Norman, a volunteer intern at the Pima Animal Care Center, Dan’s injury may have been caused by someone pulling his tail too hard.

“Puppies are super fragile and delicate when they’re young, so it’s really just an accident,” Norman says.
