Smores, a brown, and white pit bull mix was turned into the New York Animal Care and Control because his owner died; perhaps he was shot because Smores arrived at the animal shelter in extreme pain. Was Smores hit by a stray bullet?
A veterinarian examination revealed Smores to be lame on his left leg with his leg extremely swollen. The dog's leg is now in a full cast.
At this time, Smores is on the list to be euthanized, and animal advocates are coming out in crowds hoping to find a safe place for this dog. A volunteer states the following about Smores:
"I met Smores as he was being walked by staff due to his severe injury. He's in a full cast on one leg, reportedly hit by a stray bullet, and joining us when his owner passed away. He's a stunning dog, tail wagging, eyes bright, face wearing that wonderful pittie smile we all love. He was gamely walking around, not letting the cast hamper his mobility. He loved some attention, looking up, waving his tail with each pat on the head. His intake notes call him a "very sweet boy," and considering he came in with a severe injury that's quite a testament to his temperament. Smores looks like he had been well taken care of; his nails are trimmed, his coat clean, weight perfect, and then, of course, his calm and friendly personality. We are hoping that Smores makes a complete recovery and finds his way to a new family soon."
