Pardner is ready to be adopted. The one-year-old shepherd mix arrived at the Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS) after the Swan Valley Animal Protection League found him with a gunshot wound to the head last January. After four surgeries, Pardner still has a bullet lodged in his neck but it is too dangerous to remove and does not cause him harm.
"It’s incredible that Pardner has gone through such trauma but is still such a friendly and good-natured dog," said Dr. Erika Anseeuw, director of animal health at the WHS, in a release. "He is an awesome dog and considering what he’s been through, he doesn’t hold a grudge."
