The Wisconsin Humane Society is caring for a dog that was intentionally shot and has lost a front leg. That dog named Stacks, is a one-and-a-half year old Beagle/Shepherd mix.

The woman who surrendered the Stacks to WHS had a disturbing story. “People have threatened to shoot Stacks because she barks when they are running from the cops…” read the intake report. Stacks was apparently shot while protecting her own yard and family.

Stacks’ front leg sustained substantial damage and she was in a lot of pain when she arrived at WHS. She couldn’t put any weight on her leg and fell down if she tried.

A WHS veterinarian performed amputation surgery on her leg. Stacks is now fully recovered and ready to be adopted.
