LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — “Dudley” the dog, who was shot and left on the side of US 95 Sunday, has found his fur-ever home. The adorable pup went home as a foster with Doug, one of the two men who found him. Doug plans to adopt him when he’s fully recovered.
This comes just after the community raised more than $8,000 to aid in his recovery. The Great Dane mix underwent a successful surgery and is on the right track to perfect health.
Nevada Highway Patrol is asking for help to locate whoever shot Dudley.
An NHP trooper responded to the call of an injured animal at US 95 and Snow Mountain, which is north of Kyle Canyon Road. When troopers arrived, two people were assisting the injured 3-year-old. He was bleeding from the mouth and had blood on his legs.
Dudley was transported to the Animal Foundation. Vets believe he was shot in the face before he was dumped alongside the highway.
According to the trooper, even though Dudley was in pain, he was a sweet dog and loved having his belly rubbed. Doctors say he is very lucky to be alive.
