FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A dog found stabbed multiple times in a rural area near Horace is now recovering with a foster family.

The dog that rescuers named Wilford was found March 22, wounded and with no collar, tags or microchip, and brought to the Red River Emergency Animal Clinic for treatment. The Fargo-Moorhead-based 4 Luv of Dog Rescue group said Wilford had been stabbed repeatedly with an object 6-8 inches long, and officials didn’t know if he would survive.

Two weeks later, Wilford has made a remarkable comeback and is waiting for a permanent home, WDAY-TV reported (https://bit.ly/1InmHFX ).

“He loves people. He’s so laid back and relaxed,” foster parent Ellen Brisch said. “He loves attention. He’s a chow hound now that he has his appetite back.”

The Cass County Sherriff’s Office is still investigating the stabbing and asking anyone with information about who might be responsible to come forward.

“He is such a nice-spirited dog, so we want to figure out what happened,” Deputy Jolene Fletcher said.
