MADISON — A 2-month-old pit bull puppy who was thrown out of a car window could be fitted for a prosthetic thanks to a Madison-area clinic.

According to WISC-TV, Hanger Clinic in Monona will build a custom-fit prosthetic leg to fit Kringle, the puppy recovering from a leg amputation as a result of being thrown out of a moving vehicle.

Kringle was brought to UW Veterinary Care after being thrown from the vehicle, then he was transferred to the Dane County Humane Society. The humane society made the decision to amputate Kringle's leg after discovering it was badly fractured.

Kringle is currently recovering and will be available for adoption once he heals. Hanger Clinic told WISC-TV that it will be up to Kringle's new owners whether or not he will get the prosthetic.
