A dog who disappeared last week in Port Hadlock and returned home on Tuesday is a survivor. According to komonews.com, the adorable puppy, now named Victor, had been shot multiple times; at least two of the bullets entered into the dog's face. The following details about Victor's injuries are described by Rescue Every Dog organization.
"They shot him at least three times execution style through the top of his head twice and then in the back, and then left him to die. If you look at the angles of entry, this human monster was looking down into this sweet puppy's face when they pulled the trigger. The first 2 bullets entered by his eyes forehead and ripped though his head-sinus area going though the roof of his mouth; then exiting out thorough the chin, and it ended up in his left leg. One bullet is still there in the leg and needs to come out. It is thought to be a 22 caliber. They then pulled that trigger a third time firing into this young life. That bullet went through his back and blew out through his chest. He also has a bullet hole in the right leg which is fractured. Needless to say we can hardly believe he survived and is awake."
The owners of the dog were relieved when their puppy came home, but were not able to afford the veterinary care expenses for him after finding all of the bullet wounds. The family surrendered Victor to the Humane Society of Jefferson County who then reached out to Rescue Every Dog.
R.E.D. (Rescue Every Dog) is a support group for shelter workers and exceptional animals in need in public animal shelters.
Victor was rushed to the Hadlock Veterinary Clinic where he is reported to be feeling much better. He still has a massive infection in his head, and will likely need more surgery to correct the damage done to his mouth and leg. Still, volunteers and the veterinary staff are amazed how sweet Victor has been throughout all of the procedures and the pain he had to have endured during this cruel act.
The Humane Society of Jefferson County is offering a $500 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit who did this to Victor.
