According to Friday's Long Island News, an injured dog, who was abandoned in a house, has been rescued in Babylon, N.Y.

On Thursday, the Suffolk County SPCA rescued the female Maltese mix from an unoccupied home after receiving a tip. Animal control discovered that the three-year-old dog was injured...specifically, she had 38 puncture wounds and seven slash wounds, which covered her small body.

According to Newsday, the dog, dubbed "Miracle," acted as if she was not even injured when rescuers arrived. After Miracle was taken to a veterinarian, the wounds were found to be mostly superficial.

Following the rescue, Miracle's life is looking bright. The SPCA has already found an adopter for the abused dog; the abuse case is still being investigated.
