Injured dog makes its own way to hospital

A dog made its own way to a hospital in the US after being hit by a car.

The injured black Labrador turned up at Beckley Appalachian Regional Hospital, West Virginia.

It hobbled through the sliding glass doors and waited for assistance in the hallway.

Hospital workers gave the dog water, called a vet and offered to pay the bill.

Dr Roger Ward treated the animal for road burns, scrapes and an infected wound on his leg.

Ted Weigel, marketing director at the hospital said: "It's the darndest thing. The dog limped in and laid down where people could see it.

"It seemed to know exactly where to go for help. There's no way they were going to put an injured animal back on the street."

Dr Ward and hospital officials are now searching for the dog's owner.
