Marvel the pup, who is inspiring the Valley with her will to live despite having both her back legs amputated, is still looking for a forever home.

MERCED, Calif. (KFSN) -- An inspiring Valley dog and the rescue group that helped save her needs your help.

Marvel the pup was found by a Livingston police animal control officer, scooting around a property with no use of her back legs. It appeared she was hit by a car quite some time ago.

Officer Kristen Hill saw Marvel's spirit and will to live so she contacted New Beginnings for Merced County Animals.

The rescue group brought Marvel to a specialist in the Bay Area for surgery last Thursday.

Both of her back legs were amputated but we're told she's doing great!

She's been playing inside and outside - and her foster family says she seems very happy.

Marvel is scheduled to get a cart in the coming weeks so she can get around more easily.

But the president of New Beginnings says they still need to raise about $9,000 to cover the remaining cost of the surgery and the next steps.

They are also looking for the right family to adopt her after previous plans fell through.
