A 2-month-old puppy thrown out the window of a moving car is recovering with a foster family after having a leg amputated, the Dane County Humane Society said.
The puppy, now named Kringle, was rushed to UW Veterinary Care by a good Samaritan who saw him thrown from the car on Park Street, Humane Society spokeswoman Marissa DeGroot said.
UW vets gave Kringle pain medication before he was transferred to the Humane Society on Dec. 15. The society’s Animal Medical Services team discovered that his right front leg had been broken so severely that it was determined amputation would give him the best chance of a happy and healthy future, DeGroot said.

“Despite all these traumatic events, Kringle’s loving personality can’t help but shine through,” DeGroot said in a statement. “As soon as you stepped into his kennel, Kringle would excitedly greet you with a tail wag and flop over for belly rubs.”
Following the successful amputation surgery, Kringle is recovering with a foster family. Once healed, he will be available for adoption, DeGroot said.
Through the end of the year, online donations made to the Humane Society will be doubled up to $10,000, thanks to a matching gift challenge from the Don & Marilyn Anderson Foundation, DeGroot said.
DeGroot didn't have any information on possible police action against the person who threw Kringle from the car.
