Dog recovering after found in attic of fire-damaged home

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Ingrid has a bit of phoenix in her.

The malnourished dog is recovering at a Kansas City animal shelter after she was rescued from an abandoned and burned home in Kansas City. Ingrid was lying on old bedding in the attic in the 3000 block of Askew Avenue when municipal workers checking the home found her.

"She really didn't want to move," said Tori Fugate of the Kansas City Pet Project.

Fugate theorizes that Ingrid managed to hobble up a staircase inside the boarded-up house while seeking shelter.

Ingrid has a fractured leg and suffered the injury some time ago. As result, she will need the leg amputated in a few weeks once she gains some weight and her health improves.

The shelter is asking for donations to help cover Ingrid and other dogs' medical expenses.

Once Ingrid recovers, the shelter hopes to find her a foster home and eventually a permanent home. She is house broken and quite loving.

"Her personality is starting to come out," Fugate said. "She's just a beautiful, sweet dog."
