Sarge gets a new home
TOLEDO (AP) -- A German shepherd who survived six gunshot wounds in Ohio soon will move to a no-kill animal shelter that took in 22 pit bulls seized from Michael Vick’s alleged dogfighting ring.
The Best Friends Animal Society says the German shepherd named Sarge will leave for his new home in southern Utah by the end of the month.
He’ll be with some 1,700 other animals, including pit bulls taken from Vick’s dogfighting ring.
Humane society workers in Toledo had said Sarge wouldn’t be put up for adoption after he bit two employees, but the Utah shelter has agreed to take him in.
Authorities say Sarge’s owner and another man took turns shooting the dog while he was in a cage.
