LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A dog shot in the face continues to make progress, and there is word now that charges may soon be filed in the case for animal cruelty.
Lad was shot in the jaw three times in Owensboro and brought to Louisville for treatment.
New pictures show the 8-month-old collie doing much better after surgery. Lad had the lower part of his jaw removed and was being treated for infection.
His feeding tube has been removed and Lad is now able to eat on his own. He has even gained a crucial six pounds in the last few days.
The Daviess County Sheriff's Department said charges could soon be filed against the person responsible for the shooting.
