Unhappy Retired K9 shot in his own home!

I seriously just want to cry.
Why? I just don't understand how someone could do this.
In case you're afraid to watch, he is alive.

I guess it's blocked in your country.
Here's the text.
GREENACRES-- A Highway Patrol trooper's pet dog, a retired K-9 named Drake, is recovering after being shot repeatedly during a break-in at the trooper's home.

A CBS 12 news crew got to see Drake moments after he underwent hours of surgery at Simmons Veterinary Hospital in Greenacres, on Tuesday.

Dr. Ken Simmons called the shooting of the dog an obvious attempt to kill the animal. Drake was shot in the top of head, neck, a front leg, and a back leg. Simmons says had the bullet to the head hit somewhere else, the wound could have been fatal.

"That's the one that should have taken him right out," remarked Dr. Simmons, pointing out how the bullet entered above the dog's right eye, tore through his tongue, and exited below the jaw bone.

The veterinarian added, "There's some speculation about whether the dog might have had the guy's hand in his mouth when he shot him, because he shot him at point blank range." The suspect likely was avoiding his own hand, when firing at Drake's head, Simmons said.

The doctor says the trooper is understandably angry his dog was shot, but is grateful to the Forest Hill emergency clinic for keeping Duke alive, and that he continues to make progress.

Dr. Simmons says he's amazed Drake was able to survive and come through it so far, but he has a long way to go.

Donations for Drake's bills are being accepted at Simmons Veterinary Hospital.

Worked for me, and I'm in Canada - we usually have everything blocked!

That was horrible ... I'm so glad to hear that he is recovering.

They said quite possibly the dog was biting the burglar when the guy shot him!

Great! I hope the bite gets infected or is bad enough the perp has to seek medical treatment and is arrested while doing so.

@Kyleigh I noticed when I'd try to get hockey info from some Canadian sites, I would be blocked. I don't understand this.

Yeah, they believe Drake had a hold of the shooters hand or arm because Drake was shot in the head at point blank range.
He was undoubtedly protecting his home.

And I hope the guys injury turns gangrene, becomes severely infected and hurts like.....
