The German shepherd, who has been named June,had to have her right front leg amputated as a result of the shooting. Sincethat surgery, she has been in the care of Planned Pethood.

"She comes in with a gunshot wound to the dogwarden and she ends up having her leg amputated because of that and now she'sadapting to walking on three legs," said Nikki Morey with Planned Pethod.

At home with a lovingfoster family now, June is doing just fine. Planned Pethood leaders say theybelieve she was a stray, and now she's recovering both socially and physically.

"When her fosters comehome they're getting the happy tail and she's very enthusiastic to see them andshe's getting used to walking on three legs," said Morey.

June's foster family says they'rehoping she gains enough strength in her remaining front leg to not need anykind of sling or wheel to help her walk. Although she tires quickly, less thana week after surgery June is already up and moving around.
