7-week-old puppy recovering after being found with rubber bands tied around ankles
PHOENIX (FOX 10) - Officials say a 7-week-old puppy is recovering after being found with rubber bands tied around his ankles.
The Arizona Humane Society says "Little Foot" was brought in two weeks ago by a good samaritan who found the pup with rubber bands tied around his ankles.
The pup's feet were horribly swollen, which made it difficult for him to walk.
"Little Foot" is undergoing daily laser therapy and warm compress massages to promote blood flow and improve circulation in his paws.
The human society says this treatment essentially helps to "jump start" the damaged cells.
It is unknown when he will be available for adoption as his medical treatment is ongoing.
