SACRAMENTO, CA - Sacramento police K-9 officer Bodie has a 50 percent chance of going back to work after being shot in the face, his veterinarian says.
The 3-year-old German shepherd was shot by a stolen vehicle suspect Friday morning. His handler fired back - killing the suspect.
Bodie was in critical condition when he was taken to VCA Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center. He has undergone several surgeries to his mouth and neck.
Veterinarian Chris Wong said Bodie will have another surgery on Tuesday and might be allowed to go home with his handler on Thursday.
