Runaway Ohio dog recovering from arrow in chest

A runaway dog found shot in the chest with an arrow is weak but recovering after being reunited with his owners in northeast Ohio.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports ( http://bit.ly/uvNqWF) that Hershey was discovered Sunday in Valley City, about 15 miles from the home he had left 17 days earlier.

The 15-year-old German shepherd-Labrador retriever mix had an arrow poking through both sides of his chest. The local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says the arrow was probably in place for at least two days.

The arrow was removed at a veterinary hospital in Akron. On Wednesday, the dog was home with Deanne Pennell and her family in Brunswick Hills.

Pennell says the person who injured the dog should be made to volunteer at the SPCA.
