When this pup, Marty, arrived in pain at the Hempstead Animal Shelter, volunteers knew it would be a long journey. Marty had been shot in the face, which in turn broke his jaw. This wasn’t any ordinary dog, though, and what happened after his recovery was remarkable.
Marty was a stray dog that would wander the streets at night. One night, a police officer saw Marty coming towards her and, without hesitation, pulled out her gun and fired. The bullet went through Marty’s head, broke his jaw, and ended up underneath the dog’s tongue.
Somehow, though, Marty managed to survive and was rushed into surgery. Now, thankfully, he is doing much better.
Marty is in need of someone who will take the very best care of him. Someone who will give him love and comfort. If you think that you would be a good match for Marty, or you know someone else who would be, please contact the Hempstead Town Animal Shelter at (516) 785-5220, or via email at [email protected].
