Harold's a fighter: the tiny dachshund mix who was found abandoned and hurt on a road outside Squamish is recovering from his injuries and he's ready to be adopted, the SPCA said in a Friday news release.

The 18-month-old pup was found suffering from major bruising on his ribcage and abdomen and an infection on his hind end and inner right leg, Global News reported.

The SPCA put out a call for $2,000 in donations to cover surgery costs, but residents of Squamish and elsewhere stepped up in a big way, raising $6,290 for him and other animals.

The puppy may be taken into a new home as early as next week.

"We’ve been blown away by the public’s kindness and generosity," BC SPCA Squamish Valley branch manager Marika Donnelly said in a news release.

"We are so grateful to everyone who gave and to everyone who contacted us about giving Harold a forever home. He’s doing absolutely amazing!”
