A young puppy thrown from a vehicle in the south East Valley recently will likely be going to a new home Wednesday.

One of 90 dogs currently available for adoption by the Arizona Human Society, young Mio, a 10-week-old female Labrador retriever mix will be available to take one Wednesday at 11 a.m.

According to the Arizona Human Society, a bag containing two 10-week-old Labrador retriever mix puppies was thrown from a truck in the Queen Creek area; while the puppies were ultimately taken from the location by different people, one was taken to an emergency animal clinic before being routed to the Arizona Human Society’s Second Chance Animal Hospital.

Mio suffered head trauma resulting in “hemorrhagic sclera or blood in the eyes as well as pulmonary contusions, an injury to the lungs,” according to an AHS press release.

But Mio didn’t suffer any fractures or lacerations, and made a full recovery in less than one week.

Mio’s adoption comes as part of National Adopt-a-Shelter Dog month. If multiple people arrive at the AHS Campus for Compassion shelter, 1521 W. Dobbins Road in Phoenix, a drawing will be held.

The adoption fee is $160 and includes spay surgery, vaccinations, collar, ID tag, and a follow-up vet exam.

For questions about Mio, call (602) 997-7586, extension 1045.

According to AHS, no other information is available on the vehicle from which the puppies were thrown, or the second puppies health or whereabouts.
