RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A dog that was shot twice in the face two months ago on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation near Martin continues to recover from his injuries.

The Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/11axi4x ) reports the dog is now eating on her own for the first time in six weeks. The 7-month-old female Labrador mix had multiple jaw fractures following the late August incident.

The staff at a veterinary hospital had to place a feeding tube on the dog whose right hind leg was also broken.

Police Chief Ron Duke of the Oglala Sioux Tribe says authorities never received a report of the incident.

About $5,100 was raised to pay for the dog’s care. The animal will soon be put up for adoption at the Battle Mountain Humane Society in Hot Springs.
