Dog shot in the back with a .22 caliber bullet that pierced his spine will probably remain paralyzed
- San Angelo, Texas, USA -
The Concho Valley PAWS is reaching out to the community for help in finding the monster(s) who shot a dog.
On Wednesday, September 2, a citizen called the nonprofit to report an injured dog on her property, and since she could not take the puppy over to the shelter, animal control was called in.
Ms. Jenie Wilson, Executive Director of the Concho Valley PAWS, said the dog now named Bam was taken to a vet to be checked out.
Bam was crying and not wanting to move.
The first thought was that Bam had been hit by a car, but an examination revealed that the furbaby had been shot in the back with a .22 caliber bullet piercing his spine.
Bam was then released into a medical foster home where his pain is being well managed.
Ms. Wilson said that Bam does not have the use of his hind legs and will probably have permanent paralysis.
“The good news is, he does have full function of his bladder, kidneys, and bowels”, she added.
Bam is going to need long-term care and the Concho Valley PAWS said prayers and donations are greatly appreciated.
Bam is going to need a wheelchair and some specialty items for a paralyzed dog.
If you can afford to make a donation, please visit Concho Valley PAWS. Thank you!
Animal control and San Angelo Police Department are now investigating this senseless and cruel shooting, so if you have information, please come forward and speak for Bam.
Charges must be brought against whoever went after a defenseless being! Thank you!
