TOLEDO, Ohio â€” A German shepherd that survived six gunshots in Ohio soon will move to a no-kill shelter that took in pit bulls seized from Michael Vick’s dogfighting ring.
The Best Friends Animal Society says Sarge will leave for his new home in southern Utah by the end of the month. He’ll be with about 1,700 other animals.
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.
Vick, now quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, served 18 months in prison for his involvement in the dogfighting ring.
