The 4- or 5-year-old Chihuahua was found in the 1300 block of Henderson Avenue on Aug. 1, humane society officials said. It was alive but in pain, unable to walk and had no identifying tags.
The dog was taken to a shelter and examined by a veterinarian, who discovered the dog had been shot in the hindquarters, according to the humane society.
The bullet severed the 6-pound dog’s spine leaving it with no hope of regaining use of its back legs or hips and no control over its own urination and defecation, humane society officials said.
The dog was humanely euthanized that day.
The humane society is looking for information to identify a suspect in the case who could face charges of felony animal cruelty.
