Puppy Cheats Death, Ready For Adoption

A puppy survives after falling from a moving pick-up truck, but still loses a leg after the accident.
Oscar, an 11-month-old Doberman, was taken to Buncombe County Animal Services a few weeks ago after he was thrown from the truck. His owners couldn't afford his vet bills.
Oscar's leg was so swollen, he was soon transported to the Regional Emergency Animal Care Hospital. Veterinarians there discovered his femur was shattered and were forced to amputate the leg. Oscar has continued to recover and is now available for adoption from the Asheville Humane Society.
Members of the public should send a letter indicating their interest in adopting Oscar to:
