VIDEO: Shot Calif. Police Dog Bruno Needs More Surgery

The Anaheim (Calif.) PD police dog shot in the face during a confrontation with a suspect was expected to undergo additional surgery Friday, though the German shepherd’s condition was continuing to improve, officials said, reports the L.A. Times.

Bruno suffered a shattered jaw and damaged lung when a gunman opened fire during a confrontation with officers in an alleyway late last week. The suspect, a 21-year-old man who was being sought on a possible probation violation, was shot and killed by police.

The dog’s partner, Officer R.J. Young, said in a blog post that if doctors were satisfied with Bruno's progress, during the surgery they would remove a tube from his chest.

Bruno is expected to be retired and will then live with Young. Funds are being raised to help defray his medical costs.

Bruno had the additional surgery today and came through it fine. The damaged lung is working so they pulled out the breathing tube. They did some more work on the damaged jaw and tongue so he can eat a bit more on his own. The vets are extremely impressed with how quickly the big guy is healing up. He has a long way to go but it is pretty obvious he wants to do what he has to in order to go home with his handler. Awesome warrior dog.

Great news! This wonderful animals life is worth more then the POS that shot him in my opinion. Anyone who has ever works a dog or around a working K-9 knows how valuable, dependable, brave and invaluable they are. The leval of loyalty can not be matched by humans. These animals are truly Gods gift to humans and to police work. I wish we had more of them, cost effective hard working and wonderful partners. Tis comes from a non K-9 officer too!
