Dog found wandering around in Maine reveals terrible attack with X-rays

It's been learned that a black Labrador found wandering around in rural Maine survived after being shot 80 to 100 times with a BB gun. Vets discovered the BBs lodges in the dog's face, legs and back, after a good Samaritan took her to Lincoln County Animal Shelter.

As this x-ray demonstrates, the dog now named as Lady, had 50 bb pellets in her head alone.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The one-year-old Labrador, renamed Lady has since been adopted. Lincoln County Animal Control and the Waldoboro Police Department are trying to track down her attackers.

Boothbay Animal Hospital veterinarian Dr. Dean Domeyer, who treated Lady, said the BBs appear to be brass and therefore only need to be removed if they start to infect the dog's skin.

"She's a lucky dog,' Peter Blanton, Lady's new owner says. "I mean, she doesn't have any eye damage . and she doesn't seem to have any organ damage, so I think she's going to have a wonderful life. She's very lucky. I think I'm very lucky."

Domeyer said he thought something was odd when he felt a bump on Lady's snout after she was first brought in. "It wasn't just another little lump. You could feel something that was hard and round, and it felt like a BB, so we decided to take an X-ray," Domeyer says.

One X-ray revealed 50 BB pellets in the dog's head and another showed there were many more scattered throughout her body.
"There are BBs everywhere. There is one pellet and multiple, multiple BBs," Domeyer says.

Lady now appears to be happy and healthy enough but vets will keep monitoring her to ensure she doesn't develop any health concerns at a later date.

"It still remains with Lady whether we are going to have to do anything about these BBs or not," he said. "Right now, none of them pose any threat to her. We have also not done any lead levels or blood cell count to make sure there is no issue, and that's probably on the docket."

Meanwhile, the hound is settling in well with her new owner, who is said to be treating her like the high class character she is.

"In just one day, she follows me like a shadow. She just wants love, and we love her," Blanton said.
