OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- A dog that was injured in a crash between a car and train that killed two people in Oshkosh is ready for her forever home.

Elsa the dog has spent the last six months rehabilitating at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society following the crash in December of 2017.

She sustained multiple pelvic fractures in the crash and thanks to donations from the community, she was able to get needed orthopedic surgery.

Elsa was recently medically cleared and will be ready for adoption Saturday.

“Elsa has been the sweetest girl throughout everything. She just loves everyone. Dogs, cats, kids, everyone. Any family would be lucky to have her,” said OAHS Executive Director Joni Geiger.

Potential adopters can visit the shelter this Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

Shawn Schettle, the man charged in connection with the crash, is due back in court July 19 for a motion hearing. No trial date has been set.
