miracleOn Saturday, a Good Samaritan came to the rescue of a dog that had been hit by a train in San Antonio, Texas. Now the animal rescue San Antonio Pets Alive needs help saving the dog.

The 3-year-old dog was found on the train tracks with one of her hind legs severed and a broken tail. The dog was rushed to a local animal hospital.

“She wasn’t able to stand,” said Gabriella Uresti with Pets Alive. “It was probably from being in shock and being in a lot of pain.”

The staff at Pets Alive were determined to save the dog  they’ve named Miracle. She was scheduled to be euthanized but Pets Alive stepped in to save her. She will need surgery to amputate her damaged leg and tail, but once she recovers the staff believes she will make a great pet.

“Her future looks great,” said Uresti. “She needs a foster home, so we are definitely looking for someone who can foster her while she is healing and going through the process of learning how to walk on three legs, but she definitely has a really good spirit. Her future looks really good.”
