A 2-year-old Siberian Husky was hurt after a car ran her over, and now she needs your help.
The Husky, named Alexis, was hit by a police car this week, Dwight Police Department confirmed. But her owners say they can't afford the surgery, which they expect will cost about $4,000.
The owners got video of the pup being carried on a stretcher into the Pine Bluff Animal Hospital in Morris, Ill., where she's recovering from two broken legs and a collapsed lung.
