"Chelsea" was left for dead on an Indianapolis road and Lucci's House needs major donations to help with her medical care.

INDIANAPOLIS — A dog dumped from a truck, then hit by car in Indianapolis two weeks ago, is making a remarkable comeback.

The pup, nicknamed "Chelsea," is now in foster care and learning to walk on three legs. She was found on the side of a road left for dead, her pelvis and both back legs broken. One of the legs needed to be amputated. 

The rescue group Lucci House got the call and helped get Chelsea to surgery.

"Even if wasn't intentional, it had to have been known. I mean, it's just sad. It's neglect and people let these guys down more often than people think and at least she has care now," said Tamara Argabright, who is providing foster care for Chelsea. "She's such a sweet gal, and we can learn a lot from these guys."

While Chelsea will be looking for a new home, Lucci House is trying to raise the $10,000 needed to cover her medical bills. Donations can be made to the shelter's CashApp ($LuccisHouse) and Venmo (@luccishouse) accounts, via Zelle or PayPal and at Noah's Westside Animal Hospital.
