DADE CITY, FL (WFLA) -

A 10-year-old stray Boxer mix survives a run-in with a wild hog.

Now called River, the dog is recovering tonight.

She was found by a group that was horseback riding in the Green Swamp Wildlife Management Area.

When they realized the extent of her injuries, they sought medical help.

River had surgery on a fractured jaw Friday night. She is expected to make a full recovery.

The vets at Blue Pearl Clinic and the Second Chance Boxer Rescue are seeking a foster home for the dog.
