Miracle corgi on the road to recovery after being shot and left for dead but crawling for help

0

A corgi’s survival is being dubbed a miracle after he was shot in the head and left for dead but managed to crawl through a fence to run away from the breeding farm he lived at. 

Eight-year-old Pennsylvania pooch Arthur was shot in between his eyes and found on July 14 after crawling under a fence in Lancaster County. 

Arthur was rescued by the owners of a family farm the corgi crawled to and brought to the Main Line Animal Rescue in Phoenixville on July 18.

The brave dog managed to survive on his own for days and is now alive and on the road to recovery after being brought to the shelter.

When Arthur arrived to the shelter he was clearly abused, filled with fleas, had an ear infection, was anemic and had a giant gash in between his eyes, which vets initially believed to be from crawling underneath the fence, but was later confirmed to be a gunshot. 

Arthur was in too much pain for a full exam, so the vet staff began by treating the corgi with pain med and antibiotics.

They then cleaned the large wound, which was covered in debris, and performed X-Rays on him, which confirmed how close the bullet came to killing Arthur.

On Friday, the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PSPCA) shared photos of the pooch to their Instagram with the caption: ‘Arthur is lucky to be alive. And that is not an understatement. He was shot between the eyes, and seemingly left for dead.

‘But, Arthur didn’t die. He crawled under a fence to a family farm & ultimately found safety with us.’ 

PSPCA revealed after cleaning and clipping, they saw the gash looked awfully similar to a gunshot wound and performed X-Rays, which confirmed the ‘vet’s grisly suspicions.’

They added: ‘Arthur had been shot at an angle that miraculously missed his brain.’

‘The bullet left a hole in Arthur’s head & caused damage to his airway passages and mouth.’

Although everyone is rooting for Arthur to make a full recovery, bullet fragments still remain in his head and may have to be removed if problems arise in the future.

Miraculously, Arthur is alive and despite having been abused and left for dead, the pooch remains playful, focusing on the all the good that's coming his way

Miraculously, Arthur is alive and despite having been abused and left for dead, the pooch remains playful, focusing on the all the good that’s coming his way. 

The pooch is staying at the rescue shelter feasting on chicken and spending his days getting adored by the staff. 

PSPCA affiliate, Main Line Animal Rescued vowed to ‘stand by Arthur as he heals from this unimaginable trauma.’ 

The shelter has since posted videos and pictures of the dog playfully running around and all smiles after being taken care of and shown compassion and love by the vet staff.

PSPCA veterinarian Alicia Royer said: ‘He’s such a happy guy. By the second day after he woke up from anesthesia he was giving us his cute little butt wiggles. He’s a pusher and a doer.’ 

Although it’s not clear who shot the pooch, his original owners have been ruled out as suspects. 

A PSPCA told PEOPLE: ‘Arthur is doing extremely well. We, like all of Arthur’s fans, are surprised at just how well he has bounced back.’ 

The rescue shelter has also created a fundraising page for anyone who wants to help Arthur on his road to recovery. 

People everywhere have already fallen in love with Arthur and PSPCA has revealed that the adoption application is now available on their website for anyone looking to bring him into a loving home.
