A nine-month-old German shepherd puppy mix had to have his leg amputated after someone shot him in a random act of animal cruelty in Martinez, California late last week, reports NbcBayArea.

The friendly pup, now dubbed Bullet, was taken to the Contra Costa Animal Services after he was found by a Good Samaritan. The dog had been shot in his right hind leg with the bullet shattering his femur, so vets had to amputate.

“He came in limping, basically trying to cuddle up with somebody,” stated Dr. Bella Kisamov, a veterinarian with Contra Costa County Animal Services.

Authorities in the East Bay are looking for the person responsible for the cruel act.

“Our vets estimate from bullet trajectory, the dog was running away or laying down,” explained Contra Costa Animal Shelter spokesperson, Steve Burdo. “The bullet’s caliber will help officials learn “more about the distance it was shot” and “what kind of gun it could have come from.”

Bullet will be ready for adoption soon and is already a staff favorite.

    Sick degenerates who use innocent animals for target practice and abuse are one of the lowest forms of life on this planet. I hope the cops are seriously looking for this scumbag, and when they find him, put him away for the maximum amount of time, where hopefully his roomie will be an animal lover….

    I sincerely hope the person that has done this is found and brought to justice and never has the privilege of owning another animal.

    I love all breeds of dogs, but especially my german shepherds, I’ve had 4 over the years and it makes my heart ache when someone can be so cruel to any breed. These people tend to think they don’t have the same feeling as humans, the only difference is that they can’t speak to tell us what is wrong or that they love us for loving them, but they do show it.
    More humans should be like our four legged pets, they are loving, loyal forgiving and they don’t hate or hold grudges. There’s lessons to be learned. My 2nd german shepherd was instrumental in my finding out I had breast cancer and how and why someone would want to abuse, neglect or bring harm to them in any way.
    I wish they would mete out a jail sentence for harming domestic animals or house/home pets ( dogs, horses, cats). God put them here for a purpose, wild or tamed, in air and sea,. According to the word of God, we are suppose to be caretakers and some of us havent been doing such a great job of even being kind to other humans, but cruelty on a defenseless animal is just the same as cruelty towards a defenseless child.
    We have to do better in both / all areas. I know I’ve written a book here, but I’m just so passionate about our two legged and four legged babies and fur babies. Its so sad, but have been somewhat proven that a person that is cruel in this manner, would go on to commit more heinous crimes.

    PLEASE STOP THE CRUELTY ● IT DOESN’T COST US ANYTHING TO LOVE ● GIVE LOVE ● & SHOW LOVE ● TO ALL GOD’S CREATURES● REMEMBER ● FOR GOD SO “LOVED” THE WORLD ● THAT “HE GAVE”…..”HE GAVE”…. HIS ONLY….HIS ONLY…. BEGOTTEN SON. & YOU ALL KNOW THE REST, BUT THE LAST WORD TO THAT PASSAGE IS ……LIFE !!!🐕🐕🐶🐹🐰🐔🐑🐐🐖🐃🐄🐴🐼🐧🐻🐵🐯🐫🐳🐊🐠🐜🐛🐌🐬🐙🐡🐝🐞🐲🐉🐾🐾🐾🐆🐘
