Calif. K-9 shot in the face on road to recovery

The German shepherd known as Bruno received blood from his K-9 colleagues Ares and Guenther

Los Angeles Times

ANAHEIM, Calif. — An Anaheim police dog that was shot Thursday while chasing probation suspects was able to eat under his own power for the first time Sunday in what police officials are calling “an important step to his recovery.”

The German shepherd known as Bruno also received blood from his K-9 colleagues Ares and Guenther, officials said in a statement on the Anaheim police blog Behind the Badge. Officer Brett Klevos said doctors have removed Bruno’s catheter, and that the dog took a short walk on a grassy area of Yorba Regional Animal Hospital.

Authorities have said Bruno is expected to survive after being shot in the face by a suspect he was chasing in Anaheim.
