The dog, named Dozer, is doing well, despite the arrow piercing all the way through his body after entering near his right hip and exiting the left.

Dozer’s owner discovered his dog with an arrow through his body on Sunday, prompting police to review surveillance video recorded at the Grays Harbor Bowman’s Club, a nearby archery range.

A 50-year old man, whose name has not been released, was arrested on first-degree animal cruelty charges after video footage showed him intentionally shooting Dozer from about 40-yards away. He was the only person at the archery range at the time.

A veterinarian removed the arrow and is treating Dozer’s injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery.

    I'll second that, Rebecca. I'm sure that dog is a better being than the jerk with the bow and arrow.

    I hope that the person is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and required to go through a psychiatric evaluation. Sick individual.
