According to Wednesday's My Fox Tampa Bay News, a Land O'Lakes, Fla., veterinary clinic is hoping to locate the owner of a dog who was severely injured after being struck by a vehicle.

The dog, a two-year-old yellow Labrador retriever, was struck on Friday on U.S. 41, and picked up by a good Samaritan.

The Animal Health Center of Land O'Lakes, who is treating the dog's injuries, went to Facebook about the dog, dubbed "Lizzie," earlier this week - they wrote:

Lizzie is a 2-year-old female yellow labrador who was brought to us by Good Samaritans after she was hit by a car on 41 and 52. She was in critical condition throughout the weekend, but as you can see, she is feeling better today. We have made huge improvements but still have a long way to go! She is stable enough to go under anesthesia tomorrow for radiographs to identify broken bones, and she will have dental surgery to fix many problems from the accident. She is currently receiving food through a feeding tube. We have fallen in love with her and we will update everyone tomorrow! Thanks for your continual support of the Rainbow Fund! We couldn't help animals like Lizzie without you!

Though "Lizzie" was wearing a collar, she does not have an identifying microchip. Anyone who recognizes this dog should contact the veterinary hospital at: (813) 996-3800. Individuals who would like to make a donation can call the clinic directly.
