Dosha

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- In an amazing story of canine survival California-style, a dog named Dosha has shown she has nearly as many lives as the average cat.

Dosha was hit by a car near her owner's Clearwater, California, home on April 15. Next, a police officer shot her in the head to put her out of her misery. Then, presumed dead, she was put in a freezer at an animal control center.

Two hours later, when a veterinarian opened the door to the freezer, she was shocked to find Dosha, a 10-month-old of mixed-breeding, standing upright in a plastic orange bag -- the equivalent of a human body bag.

Appearing on national television Wednesday, Dosha seemed in fine spirits apart from a gunshot wound to her head and other injuries sustained from being hit by the car.

"When she first came in we called her miracle girl because we couldn't believe what she had gone through and was still with us," said veterinarian Deborah Sally on NBC's "Today" show.

"She's doing amazingly well," added Sally, who said the dog had suffered from hypothermia after being put in the fridge.

Scoops

He is a Chihuahua mix. He was rescued from an enclosed 4 lane highway on Long Island N.Y. No one knows how he ended up there. He was malnourished, cold and horribly afraid of everything. He showed classic signs of animal abuse. He refused to be picked up and would whine.

Good Samaritin Michelle Skrabut, while visiting N.Y., adopted him and took him home with her to California. It was Michelle's sister Jennifer that found him on the highway.


Day after eye surgery

Scoops had a variety of medical problems. He had to have one surgery after another. Eye abrasions, bladder stones, parasites...yuck.

Love and gentle care has helped Scoops heal. Today he is happy and active... Well, as active as his daily napping will let him be! He loves to go for rides in the car but only if you take his bed.

He has learned to trust those around him and has become an excellent watch dog... and every now and then he'll let you hold him.
