Wow! I wonder how on earth, or who on earth shot him with an arrow. I hope he has fully recovered.

Good thing they discovered that lump. Poor thing, that had to be painful.

Poor pup and thank goodness his new owners are attentive. Would a vet have even been able to find this during a routine exam if the new owners had taken him in? Glad they found the problem and were able to deal with it before that arrow shifted to the dog's heart.

No offense, but that's a pretty serious accusation with pretty much nothing to back it up.

This shows the importance of getting any new dog an exam by your own vet! Even if it comes from a shelter because things can go undetected. Amazing it survived!

How could this have gone undetected? I would question the people that the current owners adopted the dog from. I'm glad the dog is doing well and has since had the arrow removed-

It makes you wonder how it got there and why there wasn't any signs of injury at the time. I am glad that they were able to remove it and that he is doing well. Happy that the owners noticed something out of the ordinary and had him checked.

How could no one have found out about this beforehand? The poor dog was shot with an arrow! Someone had to have broken off the arrow, wouldn't they? What a great vet to do the operation for free.

This is the 2nd or 3rd story about this. Are local "hunters" using dogs for target practice?

Too odd that the previous owner (original owners?) were not aware of an 8" arrow? Could this be the reason they got rid of the dog?

We had a cat at our shelter that went in for spaying and the vet found a Bic pen inside her. She recovered. I wonder if someone shot the dog on purpose or accidentially without knowing it had been shot. I am glad it has recovered.

We definitely need more vets like this one. More concerned about the patient than making a buck. I'd say he paid it forward!
