A pup that found itself in a rather prickly situation has been reunited with its owner after receiving the medical attention it desperately needed.

According to WMUR, the injured animal was spotted by a good Samaritan on Saturday morning near Route 104 in Danbury, New Hampshire.

Upon noticing that the poor dog had a face full of porcupine quills and was in desperate need of medical assistance, the kind stranger brought the dog to a veterinarian.

Removing the quills allegedly took the doctor more than four hours total.

The Danbury, N.H. Police Department posted a picture of the dog on its Facebook page and were eventually able to reunite the dog and its unnamed owner.

The animal is said to be recovering at home.
