Dexter the Labrador retriever was shot in the head more than once, and a good Samaritan brought him to our BluePearl hospital in Brandon. While it appears the bullets missed his brain, he will need oral surgery to repair jaw damage and begin his journey to recovery. Dexter is getting excellent care by BluePearl clinicians, and rescuers with Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida are working to find him a new home.

    Dog, shot in head, taken to veterinary hospital (w/video)
    BRANDON - Someone shot a Labrador retriever in the head, more than once. Rescuers can't say why. But they have rallied around the dog in recent days, giving him a new start and a new name: Dexter. In one way, he was a lucky dog, though clearly not lucky enough.
