ROCK HILL, S.C. – A brave little puppy is on track to make a full recovery after being shot with a BB gun more than a dozen times.
Brody, who is 6-weeks-old, was found outside an apartment complex suffering from several injuries.
Aside from several gaps in his fur, Brody is recovering well at Ebenezer Animal Hospital.
“Under his skin and lodged under his muscle and tendons. We find BBs in dogs all the time and they generally don’t cause a big issue,” Dr. Jay Hreiz told WCNC. “They’re inert, they’re not moving, they’re not puncturing organs or making him overtly uncomfortable.”
Police arrested a 14-year-old boy and 17-year-old Ty’Juan Douglas on Tuesday for the shooting.
If convicted of animal cruelty charges, they could face up to five years in prison.
