A pit bull puppy is hospitalized with a broken neck after it was stuck in a plastic bag and thrown out of a moving car on Long Island, authorities say. Police are now looking for the driver. Tracie Strahan reports.
Newsday reports that the puppy, named Joey, was discharged Friday from the Veterinary Medical Center of Long Island in West Islip. He was there for three weeks after his neck was broken when he was tossed out of a car in Brentwood.
At first, veterinarians weren't sure the 3-month-old puppy would be able to walk again. But now he can.
