Puppy injured when thrown from car finds forever home

Kringle and his new human friend

MADISON, Wis. — The puppy who was seriously injured in December when he was thrown from a moving vehicle on a Madison street has found his forever home, according to the Dane County Humane Society.

DCHS said the puppy, named Kringle, has been adopted and is ready to go to his new home.

“Kringle is healthy, happy and excited to be starting the new year with a loving family,” the Dane County Humane Society posted on its website.

A good Samaritan rescued Kringle, a then-2-month-old pitbull puppy, after she reportedly saw him tossed from a vehicle on Park Street. His front leg had to be amputated.

Shortly after the news about Kringle’s case was reported, a local clinic offered to make him a prosthetic leg for free.

“We’re excited for Kringle and his new two and four-legged family members,” DCHS posted to its Facebook page Wednesday night with a picture of Kringle wearing a green-and-red sweater.
