In Haviland Bay, Ontario, a woman’s beloved German Shorthaired Pointer named Remington had been out for his morning run early last week when he was shot by an arrow, reports CBSNews.
In fact, the arrow pierced through the dog’s entire body – emerging out to the other side. According to the dog’s owner, Tina Fascina, the arrow came out of nowhere. The two had been on a walk Monday morning when the dog was struck. Remington was rushed to surgery at the Michigan State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Lansing, Michigan.
The Ontario Provincial Police K-9 Unit have been called in; an individual has been questioned by police regarding the incident. There have not been any arrests. Remington is well on his way to recovery now. On Tina Fascina’s Facebook page, an update brought smiles to all who have been following the sweet dog’s plight. “Remington is well on his on his way! He will be here for at least a few days. He is well sedated and the staff here are wonderful. Thanks to Zizi Rob Fascina Auntie Tina Szucs for coming to care for my humans. He went for a pee and looking forward to coming home. The drain tube has to stay for a few more days.”
