When train conductor Ken Van Moorhem saw an injured dog searching for food and drinking melted snow near the train tracks, he knew he couldn't leave her. Moorhem brought the dog, (who he named Hogan, after the train tunnel near where she was found) to his home where he discovered her front paw had been chewed off, possibly to escape a snare. Hogan later received a prosthetic paw and became a trained therapy dog at Shriner's Hospital, where she comforted children facing amputations. Hogan lived for seven happy years before she passed away in 2015.
