Abused dog in need of funds, foster home

Posted: Updated:
ANDOVER, Kan. (KAKE) -

Miller is recovering, patiently waiting for his prosthetic leg to arrive, and needs a foster home.

"He is happy. He's sweet. He's pretty calm. He's not that anxious, stressed out dog when we first got him," said Randi Carter of Beauties and Beasts Rescue.

Carter and the group of volunteers, donors, and supporters have all been behind Miller's road to recovery at Countryside Pet Clinic in Andover.

On April 3rd, Wichita Police Animal Control received a report of an injured dog near 35th Street North and Market. Police believe Miller was a bait dog used for illegal dog fighting.

Donors have helped increase the reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who made Miller suffer.

"We know something happened. They took him, threw him out on the side of the road, and left him to die. So, we're still looking," said Carter.

Nearly $10,000 has been raised to help with Miller recovery, amputation, and new prosthetic leg. But, Miller is still in need of about $3,000 to fix the other leg, which has severe tendon damage across the joint.

Carter said that most importantly, Miller needs a foster home to help in Miller's recovery.

"He really needs a foster home. He needs somebody to take him in and to show him how to live in a home. We don't know if he's ever been inside of a house, so he needs that really bad," she said.

The rescue is hosting a bingo benefit for Miller this Thursday, July 19, 7 p.m., at the XY Bar in Old Town (235 N Mosley).
