NEWPORT, Mich. (AP) - A dog that survived being shot in the head with a crossbow has a new home at an animal rescue and rehabilitation facility in Monroe County.

The 65-pound black-coated mastiff-Labrador mix named Gemma was found wandering in March with an arrow lodged above her left eye. A veterinarian later removed the arrow.

The Detroit News reports (https://bit.ly/1U626cB ) the dog now is living at The Devoted Barn in Newport while she awaits eventual adoption. Aimee Orn, chief animal control officer for Lapeer County, says: “We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.

Christopher Scott is awaiting trial on animal cruelty charges in Lapeer County for shooting the dog with a crossbow. The Goodland Township man’s lawyer has said Scott was trying to kill the dog because it had killed another dog.
