NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some Manhattan schoolchildren who helped rescue an abuse dog have gotten a chance to meet Misty.
Misty, a pit bull puppy estimated to be about six months old, got to visit students at the Stephen Gaynor School last week.
The students raised money for the sweet-natured puppy’s medical bills.
“She was in really bad shape, she was clearly the victim of dog fighting,” school consultant Kimberly Spanjol told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell. “She had bites all over her body, her eye was completely closed.”
