DOG WHO HAD BULLET REMOVED FROM HEAD RECOVERS AND IS UP FOR ADOPTION - “He never showed any aggression, was always the sweetest happy dog. He really just wanted to sit in your lap … even when he was hurt.”
A Pit Bull-Weimaraner mix named Ghost was discovered on the side of the road in Wyoming. Veterinarians had to perform surgery to remove a bullet from Ghost’s head. Fortunately, Ghost survived and is now up for adoption at the Rawlins Rochelle Animal Shelter. Here’s more from the Rawlins Times:
A concerned passerby driving through Saratoga stopped to see if the dog was injured and notified the police. The dog, named “Ghost” by Fall, was brought to Carbon County Veterinary Hospital in Rawlins where veterinarians removed the bullet from behind his right ear.
A few inches to the left, lower, or forward and Ghost would have died, veterinarian Katie Flock said.
“We frequently get animals that have been shot,” Flock said.
Ghost arrived at the shelter Feb. 12 with a clean bill of health after weeks at the hospital, Fall said, and is considered a special needs animal.
Ghost is timid around people but has taken a liking to officer Fall and another shelter volunteer, Fall said. He won’t take treats from people…
Around strangers, Ghost is shy to approach, but with a little coaxing he quickly licks your hand or face and wags his tail before running away.
Ghost is certainly one tough dog who deserves a second chance at happiness. Click here for the full story and here for more about the Rawlins Rochelle Animal Shelter. (Photo from the shelter’s Facebook page)
