It’s true that dogs have hijacked the human bonding system, but it’s not always because they are cute. You fur-babies are as loyal as the nativity their eyes reflect. Proving that dogs are man’s best friends, a bomb-sniffing dog took a bullet through his body in an attempt to save his handler.
K9 Kasper, a life-saver, has also protected President Trump in the past. He is recovering from his injuries after being shot when deputies with the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) exchanged gunfire with a wanted man, Phillip Oshea, who was killed.
Oshea was accused of a shooting and robbery on Friday in Jupiter, Florida. Later that day, deputies came to apprehend him, and he fired shots at them.
Kasper was struck in the left hip by gunfire. The bullet missed his crucial organs, and it was removed with surgery at Palm Beach Veterinary Specialists, according to a video posted by the Sheriff’s office.
“During the gunfire, PBSO K9 Kasper was shot while protecting his handler,” the Sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post that included a photo of the wounded dog on a veterinarian’s operating table.
“He’s on antibiotics and is walking fairly well, all things considered,” said Michele Tucker, the veterinary centre’s managing director of patient services, on the video.
