UPDATE: Dog Who Was Shot & Had Tail Cut Off Recovering From Surgery

Police in Floyd County continued to ask the community to come forward after a dog was shot in the head and had its tail cut off.

Investigators said some Good Samaritans found the German Shepard wandering last week in Prestonsburg and took her to a veterinary clinic.

The dog, who was later named Cello, was flown to an emergency animal hospital in Louisville.
