PHOENIX – A puppy named Little Foot is recovering at a Phoenix shelter after his paws were damaged by rubber bands binding his ankles.

The Arizona Humane Society said the 7-week-old pit bull was turned in two weeks ago by a good Samaritan who found him.

With feet swollen from having circulation cut off, Little Foot had a hard time walking.

But thanks to treatment that includes laser therapy to stimulate healing and warm compress massages to boost circulation, the pup is getting better and the scabs around his ankles are almost gone.

The Humane Society said it was focusing on Little Foot’s recovery and didn’t have a timetable for when he would be available for adoption.

The shelter said it would provide updates on the brown and white puppy’s condition on its Facebook page.

We want to hear from you.
