the only good part is that he now has a great chance of getting a home because he's famous.

Animal is the one who shot the arrow. God bless this innocent dog and reward his pain with a forever loving home.

Incredible that Arrow has survived. Let's just hope that he hasn't some irreversible damage.
Sadly, this sort of thing is symptomatic of a sickness that pervades the world.

Makes me sick that someone could do that to a dog. Just hope a loving family is the next chapter in this story.

It appears to me that all the animals I read about are the ones that walk on two legs and pretend that they're human! More like pieces of garbage, only fit for throwing away with all the other rubbish. How can anyone be so cruel?????

I would so love to take care of that piece of crap who did this, it would be free of charge too so the one thousand dollars that they are offering could be put towards the victim!

People who do this type of cruelty need to be taken out to a wilderness area, given a slight head start, then hunted down themselves!

How can people inflict such horror and pain on animals ? I am relieved that he has survived and should be able to find a loving, safe home. The person should be caught and prosecuted for such cruelty. That is a BEAUTIFUL dog !
