The Winnipeg Humane Society says they are ready to adopt out a dog that survived a gunshot wound to the head.
Pardner was brought to the WHS as a pup after being shot in the face near Swan Valley in January.
“It’s incredible that Pardner has gone through such trauma but is still such a friendly and good-natured dog,” said Dr. Erika Anseeuw, director of animal health at The WHS. “He is an awesome dog and considering what he’s been through, he doesn’t hold a grudge.”
Pardner, a shepherd mix, will need to be fed soft food for the next year as the bones in his skull continue to heal.
“We were so thrilled to be able to help Pardner heal from his wounds,” said Dr. Anseeuw. “This sort of injury is sadly more common than we’d like it to be, and not all dogs are as lucky as Pardner is to survive.”
