MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California police dog is in stable but guarded condition after she was stung more than 100 times by a swarm of bees.

City News Service says Robin, a 3-year-old female Belgian Malinois, was attacked Saturday as she helped Monterey Park police chase burglary suspects.

She went into anaphylactic shock and needed a blood transfusion. The Monterey Park Police Officers Association says her liver and lungs were damaged and her blood platelet count is still low but she’s improving.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune (https://bit.ly/1EG3fxy ) says police ended up arresting three suspects, including one that was located by Robin, who’s only been a police dog for four months.

The union also used social media to raise about $19,000 for her care.
