VICTORVILLE – An approximately 3 to 4-year-old injured Poodle was found by a local woman in a box on the side of the road near Village Drive and Amargosa Road, Monday morning.
The dog, now being called “June Bug” had an injury near her neck and shoulder area that appeared to be a gunshot wound. The woman immediately called her friend, Kelly Reedy, the founder Last Call K-9 Rescue for help.
The dog was taken to Ark Animal Hospital in Victorville for treatment where it was confirmed the injury to the dog was caused by a gunshot wound. During the veterinary evaluation, it was determined that June Bug was also suffering from severe dehydration.
“They are going to keep an eye on her but as of now won’t be removing the bullet as it’s not affecting any major arteries or her spine,” said Reedy. “They’re just watching to make sure there nothing else and that it doesn’t move around or anything. Once she starts eating and with a little help, they will be sending her home.”
Donations are needed for this dog and others like her. These donations can be made directly to Ark Animal Hospital under “Last Call K-9 Rescue” 760-245-7300 or a tax deductible donation can be made on their website or Facebook page.
