A female Shih Tzu was found a sorry state in a Sittingbourne park last Friday, August 11.
The pup had a serious trauma and infection which meant her left eye had to be removed by vets.
She is about two or three years old and has no microchip.
A Swale council spokesman said: “Even though she was in terrible pain, the vets told us that Winnie (the name they’ve given her), still managed a little tail wag as if she knew they were trying to help.
“She will be looked after until she has fully recovered. Everyone at the vets has fallen in love with her.
“She is a great little dog and will have a good life.”
She was taken to Borden Lane Vets in Sittingbourne where she had surgery and was cared for by nurses.
Practice manager Laura Simpson said: "One of my nurses cared for her at home as he didn't feel it was nice for such a sweet thing to go to the kennels after such an ordeal."
If you can help in the investigation into how this happened, please contact the council on 01795 417850.
