Daisy was taken to an animal hospital in Rhode Island for surgery on her puncture wounds and broken leg.
"Wild animals can do a lot of damage, especially if they're hungry. Small dogs or cats can be injured or killed," said Dr. Russell White with the Ocean State Veterinary Specialists.
White has been caring for Daisy and has advice for all pet owners.
"It's really important for those smaller animals, especially when they go outside, to make sure they're staying close to the house or in an enclosed area even though though those animals can get in to injure them keeping them away from exposed is a good recommendation," White said.
White said Daisy is expected to make a full recovery.
