SALT LAKE CITY — On Sunday South Salt Lake Animal Services reported that a 2-month-old dog was thrown from a car.
The dog, named Malin, meaning “warrior” or “strong, little warrior,” sustained two broken back legs and two rib fractures from the incident.
Helping Malin heal
Malin will need multiple surgeries for her injuries. South Salt Lake Animal Services is hoping to raise funds to make that possible.
