Honorary Mutt: Lilly the Heroic Pitbull

Posted on

Really pitbulls are the ultimate mutts, but if you didn’t already believe they get a bad rap, allow us to introduce you to Lilly.

According to MyFoxBoston, 8-year-old Lilly rescued her unconscious owner  from the path of freight train…much to her own detriment:

Spain was not injured, but Lilly suffered a complete “de-gloving” of her right foot: all of the muscle and skin were gone. Her pelvis was fractured in multiple locations and she suffered other internal injuries. But even as first police and firefighters arrived at the scene, Lilly stayed by her owner’s side.

Lilly ended up having one of her legs amputated, and surgery on her pelvis.
