DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police continue looking for a man that authorities allege walked up to a group of children and shot their dog for seemingly no reason.
WFAA-TV reports Nolan, a 9-month-old Labrador Retriever mix, is expected to make a full recovery after undergoing an emergency surgery.
The dog’s owner, Genola Vance, tells WFAA-TV her son and nephews were taking out the trash on Feb. 28 when the unidentified man walked up to them, said “sorry” and shot Nolan. The man wore a black hoodie and had a backpack.
The dog was shot in the front of his mouth, breaking his jaw.
The local SPCA chapter paid for his surgery, which was around $7,000.
Vance says she doesn’t know why someone would want to shoot Nolan in an unprovoked attack.
