The plight of a stray puppy discovered badly injured in Benzie County has prompted an outpouring of support from pet lovers across the nation.

Good Samaritans found the puppy, dubbed “Broken” because its front legs are fractured. Benzie County Animal Control Supervisor Jaime Croel responded to the call on Christmas Eve and observed a badly wounded pooch.

Update from Bay Area Pet Hospital: For those of you that were following along with our puppy with the broken legs (St. Nick), I am happy to report he was picked up from our hospital. Tail wagging and walking, he will now begin the search for his forever home. He is the sweetest boy and we hope he gets enough love to compensate for the horrible start he has had to life. Bay Area Pet Hospitals would like to thank you all again for your support, you are all appreciated very much!

Update from Oakwood Vet, Jan. 6, 2013: Saint Nick came in for a recheck this morning with Dr. Henshaw. Here is a video of him walking down the back hallway at Oakwood. Amazing to think he had two broken legs just over a week ago! (sorry if the video plays sideways). Click here for video.
