STAFFORD, N.J. (AP) - Donations have been raised to help a pit bull who survived a gunshot wound to the face.

Officials at the Stafford Veterinary Hospital tell The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1d9Oz2S ) that Boss the pit bull underwent successful surgery Tuesday to remove the bullet from his neck, repair a torn ligament and be neutered.

In addition to hospital donations, an online fundraising campaign has raised more than $5,000.

An office manager at the hospital says the response has been so overwhelming that donations are no longer needed.

Boss was found March 7, limping and bleeding from a gunshot wound to the face while wandering in traffic on Route 9 in New Gretna in Burlington County.

The couple that found him say they hope to adopt him.

Prosecutors are investigating the shooting.
