A puppy found badly burned and wandering in South Phoenix is recovering following surgery.
The pit bull mix named Ash has burns on its back and legs. The dog is only about eight weeks old according to veterinarians at Bethany Animal Hospital in Phoenix.
Doctors do not think the burns were an accident and that someone probably dumped some sort of chemical or acid on Ash.
The puppy made it out of surgery Wednesday and doctors say he is already starting to heal.
If all goes well, Ash will be up for adoption in about six to eight weeks.
