VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A 2-year-old Great Dane shot twice in the head Lafayette, Louisiana, is now recovering at a volunteer animal shelter in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
  
The Vicksburg Post reports the dog named Riley was shot about eight months ago and rushed to a veterinarian by a witness. Blind in one eye that’s backed by a bullet and partially blind in the other eye, Riley is still in recovery. She’s is now being cared for at Helping Animals Reach Tomorrow, which is trying to help her recover from malnourishment and prepare for adoption.
