Officer Makes Emotional Decision To Adopt Dog He Rescued After It Was Shot In The Face


Being involved in animal rescues is often a thankless and heartbreaking job for law enforcement, but some cases have their share of silver linings.

For a Pit Bull that was shot in the face and doused in bleach, being rescued from an abusive environment is only half the battle. Finding a safe and loving home can prove to be an even greater challenge.

Thankfully, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officer Timothy Elliott was willing to help such a pup out with both.

Elliott first met the dog on May 9, reporting to a local post office where an injured dog had shown up.

According to Fox 7, Elliott found the dog “in the corner lying in a pool of blood,” while the air around him was diffuse with “an overwhelming smell of cleaning chemicals.”
