A puppy found in Michigan City with its mouth duct taped shut is recovering with a foster family after he underwent several surgeries.
Chance Christmas also had broken hips, but is recovering after he was taken to a clinic and received medical treatment, WSBT reported.
“I think he looks great. I mean he’s just still such a sweet little guy and his ears are crazy,” Maggie Sharpe, a veternarian who treated Chance, told WSBT. “We were talking about how big his ears are and how happy he is.”
