ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — A 6-month old Labrador mix named Brody is recovering at an animal hospital in Rock Hill after the dog was shot 18 times with a BB gun.
Local media outlets reports that police responded to an apartment complex Sunday after a utility worker reported a group of as many as 20 juveniles were playing with a black puppy.
The officer found the dog was bleeding.
The youngsters told him someone had shot and stabbed the puppy. A veterinarian said the dog was not stabbed but did have intestinal parasites.
Workers at the Ebenezer Animal Hospital dubbed the puppy Brody.
This story has been corrected to correct spelling of name to Brody.
