This makes me so incredibly sad. This poor animal is suffering because some psycho decided that their evil urges were more important than the well-being of this dog and its owners.

Animal cruelty is a felony in Texas, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.

Please, if you have any information on who could have shot this poor dog, contact the police. People who hurt animals like this need immediate and intense professional help -- or they need to be locked up. Either way, this level of abuse is indicative of a deeply disturbed individual.

I do want to echo the sentiment about Live Oak. They are AMAZING at saving animals in dire straights.
