Good Fla. samaritans save abused dog

A dog beaten, shot and hit by a car in Florida is on the mend - thanks to some good samaritans.

Community members raised $3,000 for "Rocko" to have surgery for his injuries.

"He's such a sweet dog. I mean you can tell he's in some pain. Bless the hearts of everyone out there who donated because he's such a sweet boy, and he's so, so handsome."

A 54-year-old man is charged with animal cruelty. Authorities say he beat "Rocko" with a baseball bat and shot the animal with a BB gun. The dog's owners say the dog was attacked after running away from the car wash where the owners work. Rocko was hit by the car while trying to run away from his attacker.
