The gunshot wound caused a serious fracture to his leg and he underwent surgery on Wednesday. He is on complete bed rest for the next four weeks. We are still not out of the woods and it is still possible that he may lose the leg, though the vets are doing their best to save it.
A ChipIn fund has been started at http://coal.chipin.com/coal-gunshot-wound to help in his growing medical expenses.
A Facebook page has also been started for those that wish to keep up to date on his recovery.
The animal control officer for St. Robert was not even aware of the incident until I told her about it on Wednesday when I visited her to pull the last of the dogs from their kill shelter - we try to keep their shelter empty for obvious reasons. Whoever answered the call at the police station did not bother to pass on the information to her since it was outside of city limits by a whole block, however she has requested a copy of the report and x-rays from the vet for her records as soon as I get it. Just because the dog was found outside city limits does not mean the incident happened there. We already have some leads from the general public as a result of all of our internet postings.
