His owner, Laurie Stec, was informed of the incident and immediately put together a search party to find her wounded pet.
Stubbs was discovered hours later hiding in an abandoned structure near the general store.
He had sustained a deep gash, a punctured lung, and a crushed sternum, and was rushed to a vet in Wasilla, some 70 miles away.
There, staffers dressed his wounds, hooked him up to life support, and fitted with a compression jacket.
Stec's medical expenses have surpassed $2,000, but she says Stubbs is more than worth it.
An attempt to locate the dog or its owner were unsuccessful, but Stec says she plans to file a report with animal control in an effort to have the animal removed from Talkeetna.
