In Caldwell, Texas an unknown, despicable culprit shot a one-year-old Catahoula dog in the face and abdomen and left the dog to languish in pain until he died reported

On Friday, the dog wandered into the yard of a family who called the Burleson County Sheriff's Office for help.

True Blue Animal Rescue of Brenham have taken the dog, now named Chance, into their care. Chance was sent to Brenham Veterinary Hospital where doctors stated the bullet had entered into the dog's left eye and exited through the back of his head. Miraculously, Chance suffered no brain damage.

Upon further examination, veterinarians found pellet holes in the dog's abdomen. At one time the dog's tail was also removed incorrectly.

The friendly pooch is now in the care of a foster home and will remain there on pain killers and antibiotics for the next two weeks. Then Chance will return to Brenham Veterinary Hospital to have his left eye removed.

After he recovers, Chance will be eligible for adoption.

True Blue Animal Rescue is asking for the public's help with Chance's medical bills. Please click here for further information and how you can help.

Donations can also be called directly into the Brenham Veterinary Hospital at (979)-836-2472.

If you have any information about this dog or know who might be his owner, please call Deputy Canterberry at the Burleson County Sheriff's Office. Please help authorities find the person responsible for this animal cruelty.
