Arizona 3-legged pit bull up for adoption

Posted: Updated:

A puppy, severely beaten at only 9 weeks old has now recovered and is ready for adoption.

Animal rescue officials say Miles was in really tough shape when he was brought to them. The pit bull puppy was screaming in pain, with a homemade splint made of a coat hanger and gauze.

Surgeons had to amputate his leg, but a local prosthetics company has stepped in to offer a prosthetic leg for Miles at no charge.
