KENNETT, MO (KAIT) -

8:36 p.m., Dec. 6 UPDATE: A dog found shot earlier this month is doing better but is in guarded condition, officials said Tuesday night. 

According to a post on the Kennett Humane Department's Facebook page, Rover is feeling better but is eating well. The dog has also been treated for parasites including heart worms. 

All of the tests have come back negative, as the dog continues to receive treatment from the shooting. 


The Kennett Humane Department picked up a dog that was shot three times and now it is in a Kennett veterinary clinic fighting for its life.

Corporal Alan Campball with Kennett Police Department told Region 8 News a resident in Bragg City found the dog in a wooded area.

Campball said they believe a duck hunter shot the dog to keep it from scaring off the ducks.

Since residents found the dog outside of Pemiscot County, Campball said anyone with information should contact the Pemiscot County Sheriff’s Department at (573) 333-4101.

The Kennett Veterinary Clinic is treating the dog. If you are interested in making a donation for the dog’s medical cost, click here
