Puppy with broken legs crawls home after surviving tornado

Saved: Mason had surgery on his legs fter being thrown high into the air by a tornado

A puppy crawled home with two broken legs after being thrown high into the air by a tornado that ripped through Alabama.Mason, a terrier mix, was feared dead after the storm but was found two weeks later by his owners in the wreckage of their home.
"This is probably the most dramatic we've seen as far as an injury in an animal that's survived this long," said Phil Doster at Birmingham Jefferson County Animal Control shelter, who is caring for Mason following surgery. The shelter has dealt with hundreds of pets hurt by the storms.
"For an animal just to show up on someone's porch after this time was pretty remarkable, especially with the condition he's in."
Mason has become a minor celebrity, and has a Facebook page with more than 1,200 friends.
