Found near death, neglected dog recovering
Phoenix, a chocolate Labrador-cross was found on the highway south of Calgary near Fort Macleod about five weeks ago.
The emaciated dog had broken bones, an infected eye and was suffering from numerous wounds from porcupine quills.
YouTube video released by Pound Rescue, the organization based in Okotoks that saved the dog, showed how badly hurt the animal was when it was rescued.
