In September, the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, (NCSPCA) found the tan puppy with her rear leg partially missing and her ear flaps cut off; she was also suffering from severe infections.

My Pets Vet in Huntington, has been caring for the dog named Miss Harper, and from all reports, the spunky little pooch, although seriously injured when she arrived, holds no grudges at all against any humans. In fact, the bouncing bundle of cuteness just wants to play despite her physical challenges.

Now Miss Harper will be able to have the surgery she needs. The public is also being asked to help. According to Detective Robert Sowers of the Nassau County SPCA:

“We are asking the public and animal lovers to help us in our efforts to raise funds for the needed surgeries and care that this poor puppy faces."

Miss Harper will need more surgery on her ears, and a possible amputation of her leg if the prosthetic partial leg isn't successful.

A criminal investigation with the Attorney General's Office continues, and authorities say an arrest is imminent for the culprit who did this to the puppy.
