Puppy gets fitted for prosthetic paw

Pit bull puppy found with severed paw

PLANTATION, Fla. - A pit bull puppy named Debbie wags her tail and loves belly rubs. So, it's hard to imagine that this 4-month-old puppy was the possible victim of animal abuse.

In April, a group of kids found Debbie wandering around a North Miami neighborhood. She had a severed paw.

Plantation-based Around and About stepped in and offered to fit Debbie with a prosthetic.

On Friday, Debbie was fitted for her new paw.

The cast is off and set to be molded into a new paw, which will ensure she doesn't overwork her other limbs. As she grows, so will her prosthetic.

At last check, Debbie still needed a new home. She will soon be up for adoption. If you're interested, 1 Lucky Dog Rescue.
