Aiken dog shot by BB's recovers from surgery, ready for adoption

(WFXG) - An Aiken dog is up for adoption after a tough stretch.

Remington arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter as a skinny stray with a wound in his left eye.

Remington was riddled with BB's pellets and obviously shooken up.

Dr. Levy was able to operate on Remington and found a BB in his eye socket.

Following the surgery, Remington recovered and is now able to be adopted.

"I still cannot understand how someone could use a dog for target practice, showing total disregard for him as a living, feeling creature," Dr. Levy said.

Remington is located at the Aiken County Animal Shelter located at 333 Wire Road in Aiken.
