POWHATAN, VA—After a dog was badly burned when her owners say she ran into a burning barn in an attempt to rescue her newborn puppies, the Powhatan community is coming together to help fund the canine's medical expensive.

A Facebook page called "Freckles is a Hero" has nearly 500 likes, and an accompanying donation site has raised more than $6,000.

The page says the dog, Freckles, ran into a burning horse trailer, attempting to save her seven puppies from the fire. Freckles suffered serious burns, and only two of the seven puppies survived, according to the page.

Freckles is now in stable condition, but faces a long and costly road to recovery, according to the page.
