Pit Bull Mix Survives Shooting In Olde Town East (Image 1)

King, a pit bull mix, was shot just outside of a home on Engler Street yesterday afternoon.

Leesha White says her dog had made its way into a neighbor’s yard when he was called back.

“The guy comes out full force and attacks my dog, he said, ‘I told you to keep your dog out of my yard,’” White said.

Then, a gunshot–and King came running back to his house, with a bullet to the face that traveled through his neck.

“I cried,” White said. “He didn’t do anything. He was out there 5 minutes.”

She admits she didn’t have him on a leash, saying other dog owners in her area have an unspoken agreement to have them on leashes if there are other dogs around.

This time, she said it ended with her dog seriously injured.

“If he felt like he needed to shoot something, go to the gun range. Don’t shoot people’s dogs because they walk in and out of your yard.

Police are investigating, but as of now no charges have been filed.

White says they got treatment at the OSU Veterinarian Medical Center and learned just how close they were to losing King.

“2 inches, just inches up and his brain would be shattered,” White said.
