A dog found with more than 100 bullet fragments throughout his body in March has finally found his forever home.
Remington, now named Mac, went through months of extensive surgeries and rehabilitation after being shot. Aside from some paralysis on the left side of his face, he made a full recovery.
He was brought to the Battlefords Humane Society and after a few failed trial visits with different families, he’s found a home.
“It sounds bad, but I am glad he didn’t work out with all those other homes because now he is mine,” said Amy Pronovost.
“He is such a good dog. I took him on a trial adoption and three days later he was part of my family.”
According to Pronovost, Mac is a very well-tempered dog. He gets along great with her three cats but she admitted sometimes the cats don’t get along with him.
“He is still a puppy and always wants to play and sometimes they just aren’t in the mood to play with him,” Pronovost said. “He has a great temperament, though. I can let kids pet him without worrying if he’ll bite. He gets along great with other dogs, too. There are a couple at the park he doesn’t do so great with but we just don’t go if they’re there.”
Back in March, Mac underwent multiple surgeries to remove shotgun pellets.
