DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) - Residents of Dublin and Laurens County have
volunteered to help a yellow Labrador retriever who was the victim
of a cruel attack.
According to Dr. Beverly Hickman of the Shamrock Veterinary Clinic in Dublin, the $2,700 raised by residents will likely be enough to pay the vet bills after he was allegedly attacked by a 13-year-old boy back on Oct. 12.
Hickman said the boy shot Yellow in the leg with an arrow, shot him in the face with birdshot and tied him to a four-wheeler and tried to drive off.
The dog broke loose and was taken to Hickman's office by a neighbor.
The Laurens County Sheriff's Office said the boy has pleaded not guilty to accusations and was released to his parents.
After surgery, Yellow will be available for adoption, and Hickman said three people have already expressed interest.
