The wounded police dog was rushed to a patrol vehicle and transported to a veterinary hospital. Police say he is recovering.
Goff was injured during his arrest and taken to a hospital for treatment. Police say that when he is released from the hospital he will be booked on charges, including attempting to kill a police animal, burglary, and resisting arrest with a weapon.
