Golden Retriever Shot With Arrow, Dies

Last week in Seymour, Tenn a 6 year old golden retriever mix named Allie was shot with a bow and arrow that went right through her side.  She was seen wandering around by a stranger who brought her to a Veterinary clinic, where she had to be euthanized due to the extent of the injuries.

The dog’s owner Julie Scott called the clinic searching for her dog when she received the news.   Apparently the dog escaped the backyard, which was a common occurrence.
