Bryson City, NC – A puppy thrown from the window of a moving Jeep on Sept. 8 has been found. The pup, dubbed Little Apollo by PAWS Bryson City staff, survived the throw and he was found four days later.
On Wednesday, the animal welfare agency addressed the people who have been worried about his fate, and provided an update on his condition:
He knows everyone has been worried sick over him after seeing the video of him being thrown violently from a vehicle.
He’s malnourished, loaded down with fleas and parasites. Has some small abrasions and two small fractures but considering what he’s been through he’s doing awesome!!
As reported by ABC 13 News, an off-duty Swain County Sheriff’s deputy found the puppy not far from the shelter facility.
A suspect, who is local to the area, has been identified and is expected to face charges for Abandonment of an animal and cruelty to animals.
Little Apollo will be adopted out to a loving home after he has fully recovered.
