LAPEER COUNTY (WJRT) (1/10/2019) - Princess, the dog found with a serious leg injury during a Lapeer County animal cruelty investigation, will get to walk on all four paws again someday.

A veterinarian was able to save the dog's broken hind leg during a surgery performed earlier this month. She is recovering at the home of a Lapeer County Animal Control officer, who is fostering her.

Princess needs a lot of rehabilitation and medical care as she continues to recover. She is not available for adoption yet, but animal control officers hope to adopt her soon.

Princess was one of 10 malnourished puppies recovered from the home of a man who shot two dogs in front of animal control officers when they arrived to investigate cruelty complaints in December.

The other nine puppies all were adopted.

Lapeer County Animal Control is accepting donations for Princess' medical costs. Donations can be made by cash, check or credit card at the animal shelter.
