'Dog who wouldn't die' recovering after Facebook campaign
09 January, 2013
A dog who was found shot in the head and face with a pellet gun, stuffed in a garbage bag and left to die is recovering from his injuries at an animal clinic in Texas thanks, in part, to a Facebook campaign that was launched to help pay for his veterinary bills.
The bag containing the three-year-old male mixed breed was discovered tied to a fence in Conroe, Texas, earlier this month. When local resident Tami Augustyn opened the bag, the dog emerged, took a few steps and collapsed, according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter.
The dog was covered in blood, Augustyn said, leading her to believe he was a "bait dog".
