KANSAS CITY — A 2-year-old yellow Labrador mix is recovering at a Kansas City shelter after being shot four times.
And workers at Wayside Waifs, one of the city's humane societies, have dubbed him Bullet.
Waifs spokeswoman Ashlee Parker says Bullet was found several weeks ago in Caldwell County, shot once in the head, once in each front shoulder and once in the neck.
The Kansas City Star reports that the Cameron-based rescue group Safe Haven took in the dog, paid for his treatments and nursed him mostly back to health. Parker says Bullet still has some pain in one of his shoulders and one leg.
Bullet arrived at Wayside Waifs Tuesday. He got X-rays and was neutered.Currently Bullet is not up for adoption.
Officials don't know who shot the dog or why.
