The bullets could have hit one of the family members but instead hit Charlie in her front and back right legs. After the police arrived, the owners had to take Charlie to a shelter since they couldn’t afford the expense of an emergency veterinarian.
As usual the public responded in a magnificent fashion when they heard the story. Their plea brought in more than $8000, far more than was needed. The extra money will go to help other pets in need.
The surgery to amputate her leg was successful and Charlie, the hero dog, is back with her family. The story
Like every other three legged dog, as soon as her cone of bravery comes off, Charlie will quickly adapt without giving her disability a second thought.
And...I don't think we can remind ourselves too often about how generous people are when they see a family or a dog in need.
