A Good Samaritan rescued a three-month-old black Labrador retriever puppy on Tuesday evening in Beckley, W.V. The puppy, whose bottom jaw seemed to be displaced, was brought to the Humane Society of Raleigh County where representatives rushed him to emergency veterinarian care.
Authorities think the puppy may have been thrown out of a vehicle and landed on his face.
Rescuers have named the friendly little pooch Herbie, and his prognosis looks promising. Although the force of the fall broke all of the puppy's bottom teeth, the medical staff was able to perform surgery and reattach his bottom lip and his gums back to his jaw.
The Humane Society of Raleigh County's rescue coordinator Nicole Adkins stated Herbie will be doing his rehabilitation at a foster home, but the adorable little guy is available for adoption or rescue by a qualified organization.
"While we were waiting last night to take him to the emergency vet, Herbie had no problems with all of us loving on him," stated Nicole.
Despite having a rough beginning to his young life, Herbie is expected to make a complete recovery.
