Dog who survived machete attack making surprise recovery
By: Oscar Garcia
EL PASO, TX. A dog who was brutally attacked, allegedly by a man in the Upper Valley in June, is making a speedy recovery. The organization that originated from this tragedy, "Marley's Miracle," held an event on Sept. 15. Its members managed to raise thousands of dollars for Marley's medical expenses. On Friday, the organizer presented Dr. Jim Koschmann from Crossroads Animal Hospital with a check worth more than $2,500 to cover Marley's treatment. Dr. Koschmann said he didn't think Marley would survive the attack. He said the dog was hit at least 13 times with the machete, causing injuries that included a shattered foot, broken teeth and an eye that was left hanging out of its socket.
Organizers of "Marley's Miracle" say they are already planning another fundraiser for next fall. They said proceeds from that event will go to a non-profit organization dedicated to helping animals.
