SALT LAKE CITY, UT (CNN) -- Haley Savage was shocked to find out a stranger reportedly threw her boxer off an interstate overpass after the dog escaped a fenced-in yard.

CNN affiliate KTVX and Utah Highway patrol report several 911 calls stated a red Ford truck stopped at an overpass, got out of the truck and threw the dog to the interstate below.

The dog, named Seven, is being treated for a broken jaw and blood in her lungs among other injuries. The vets treating her have been calling the dog Lucky Seven since she wasn't hit by a car on the interstate. Shredded beef was found in the dog's stomach, leading Savage to believe the stranger lured the dog into the truck with food.
