Puppy Survives Arrow Through The Neck
Monday morning in southern California, a Chihuahua puppy was shot in the neck with an arrow.
According to Riverside County Animal Services, the tiny dog is expected to survive.
Authorities received a 911 call from a woman in a neighborhood near Desert Hot Springs on Monday morning and reported that there was a wounded dog “screaming.”
Officer Matthew Perez from Animal Services transported the four-month-old female puppy to the Coachella Valley Animal Campus in Thousand Palms, California, according to reports.
Miraculously the arrow went through the dog’s neck and did not hit any major arteries, according to animal services.
Veterinary surgeons were able to successfully remove the arrow and the puppy is expected to recover.
“It’s amazing to see her affection, despite what occurred,” veterinary technician Emily Ellison said.
“She is such a sweet puppy. I cannot imagine why anyone would do something so terrible to such an innocent creature.”
