Dog left for dead with eyes gouged out doing better

A dog that was used for target practice in Arizona and had its eyes gouged out is doing better, myfoxphoenix.com reports.

Andre was left for dead, found in a plastic bag in a Dumpster. He had apparently been used as target practice for BB guns, according to the station.

Andre’s eyes were gouged out, but his eye sockets are healing well following surgery.

Andre is now taking short walks and has a good appetite, according to myfoxphoenix.com.
