(KSL News) -- The German Shephard that survived being hit by a TRAX train on Labor Day is now back home with his owners.

The dog, named "Otis," belongs to a couple that lives near 80th South, where he was hit. Cody and Shaylee Burgener say they didn't have the money to pay the vet's bill to get him back.

It normally would have run about one thousand dollars, but it has been reduced to less than 400. And donations from the community, including TRAX, are covering a good portion of that.

Since the injured dog was found, more than 30 people have called to adopt him.
