BOSTON (CBS) — An abandoned puppy found with several broken toes last month is now recovering well and looking for a home.

The 5-month-old brown and brindle Pit Bull-mix was treated at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals–Angell Animal Medical Center after she was brought there by a man who found her limping in an East Boston churchyard.

“We’re going to do all we can to get her well and into a loving home that she so deserves,” said Amanda Laskoe, the animal care supervisor at the MSPCA-Angell, in a statement.

The puppy, named Ramona by the MSPCA-Angell staff, did not have identification tags or a microchip when she was found on Sept. 10.

The staff believes Ramona was hit by a car.

She wore a splint on her left foot for several weeks before having it put in a cast by shelter veterinarians at the MSPCA’s Shalit-Glazer Clinic.

Ramona is now up for adoption.

Those interested in adopting Ramona can contact the adoption center directly at adoption@mspca.org to learn about the kind of home staff members are searching for.
