LAPORTE | A dog in LaPorte County is recovering from surgery after being shot.
Larry Wysocki said he was in his garage about 4 p.m. Tuesday when he heard a gunshot then found his German shepherd wounded in the backyard, according to LaPorte County Sheriff's Department.
He suspected one of his neighbors, who denied having anything to do with it, authorities said.
Wysocki took the dog from his Hudson Lake home to the nearest animal clinic.
His mother, Joyce Wysocki, said the dog had a bullet removed from a back leg and was allowed to return home.
