A Canadian canine is being called the “luckiest dog in the world” after surviving getting shot with an arrow.
The dog was found Sunday near Regina, Saskatchewan, with an arrow lodged in its back.
Veterinarians have since named the dog “Arrow” and the CC RezQs animal rescue organization says it has found a foster home to care for her while she recovers, CBC reports.
“Arrow is considered the luckiest dog in the world! The arrow missed her spinal cord by 9 millimetres!” said a Facebook post by the group. “There are broken pieces of vertebrae floating around still, so not out of the woods yet. Vet team was able to clean a lot of hair and 'gunk' out of the large wound.”
The dog is believed to be a stray and may need further surgery to remove fragments of vertebrae.
