A dog in Michigan was tied and abandoned behind a Walmart in freezing cold weather, and was forced to chew her own paw off to free herself.
Security footage showed the dog, now named Courtney, being dumped behind the Walmart and tied up with a cable; presumably by her now former owners.
In freezing cold temperatures, Courtney was stuck and decided to take matters in her own hands, and gnawed off her paw in order to escape to somewhere warm.
After workers found the dog struggling, Courtney was taken into emergency vet care where she had to have her leg amputated and her stomach pumped to remove the bone shards she ingested.
Despite everything Courtney is healing and has turned out to be a very happy go lucky, friendly dog. The Roseville Police Department is asking anyone with information on this case to come forward. You can see the footage of the people and the car here.
In the mean time Courtney will be looking for a new home via Hopeful Hearts Rescue in Michigan.
