JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Rottweiler found wandering along County Line Road last December is being called a miracle dog because the animal had been shot three times, once in the head.    

The dog has never shown any aggression toward people or other dogs. Three bullets were found in it's body and two of them are still there. One was removed from it's head.  

Dr. Jeb Cade, an assistant to Dr. Adrian Whittington, nursed the dog back to health at the North State Animal and Bird Hospital.  

"When you look at the x-rays, the number of times he was shot, and where he was shot, and the fact that you found him on County Line Road, it is a miracle this dog is alive," said Dr. Cade.

The other two bullets, still in the dog, are causing no problems.

Jim Walker, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, was the one who found the dog out in traffic, in front of the Hilton Hotel.

"I think it is a shame there are people out there who would do something like this," said Walker. "I don't see how he survived three shots. Secondly, how he made it through all that rush hour traffic. I have no idea, but he is going to make somebody a great pet. And he gets a second chance."

The dog is now almost fully recovered and ready for adoption. If you would like to adopt the dog, contact Dr. Adrian Whittington at the North State Street Animal and Bird Hospital.
