A brave pup wounded in a recent fire is recovering from its burns and will be able to search for a new home soon. 

Lee Lee, a six-month-old Boxer mix, suffered server burn wounds to her torso and abdomen due to an electrical fire and the injuries were not discovered until weeks after the incident.

Originally the Red Cross indicated that Lee Lee was injured during the Casa Linda Apartment fire almost three weeks ago. Since that information was given, the Red Cross sent an update clarifying the incorrect information they initially provided. 

According to the Red Cross, Lee Lee was injured in another fire that occurred the same day as the Casa Linda Apartment fire. 

Lee Lee's original owners were unable to harbor the animal after their move into a new living situation and placed the puppy under the care of the Humane Society of Tulsa.

Executive Director of the Humane Society, Evan Fadem, says it was not until her staff shaved Lee Lee did they notice the extent of the puppy's injuries.

“She's incredibly sweet and very resilient. Despite her horrible condition when she came in she's been such a sweetheart and she's happy. Wagging her tale, doesn't sit still and is in full on go mode.”

After days of ingesting pain medication and receiving aid form the Humane Society, Lee Lee began to showing signs of healing and she will soon be able to go home.
