MARION, Indiana — An Indiana dog left out in the cold lost his leg to frostbite.

But T-Peg, as he’s now known, got a loving new home.

According to Indianapolis FOX affiliate WXIN, the dog was found on the side of the road in Marion back in January.

T-Peg’s left leg was stuck to the ground and he had to have his front left leg amputated. His right front paw also suffered frostbite, but is showing signs of recovery.

When Ryan Ferrell heard about T-Peg’s story, he knew he wanted to adopt the dog.

Ferrell said it took some time for them to warm up to each other. Ferrell has set up a Facebook page where people can receive updates about T-Peg’s recovery.
