A dog who survived being shot in the face, which resulted in the loss of his lower jaw, is still waiting for a home of his own. The four-year-old dog, named Chopper, is being cared for by Indiana’s Humane Society for Hamilton County. On Wednesday morning, the animal shelter issued a plea on the dog’s behalf.
The shelter wrote:
“Today, Chopper sits in our kennels, waiting for his forever family to come and find him. He’s growing increasingly anxious and depressed and his appetite has declined.”
For awhile, Chopper was able to live in a foster home, and he apparently relished the time! The shelter stated, “Chopper was living the life of a dog! He would play, snuggle, and spend time with his family – dogs included!”
Chopper has some special needs – he is heartworm positive and requires treatment. He also needs to eat pureed food because of his missing jaw – other than that, he is a loving dog who has proved himself to be a survivor.
