Dunkin, the pit-bull puppy that was found shot and frozen in Youngstown, is doing well.


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Dunkin, the pit-bull puppy that was found shot and frozen in Youngstown, is doing well.

Animal Charity of Ohio workers say it took nearly all day to bring Dunkin’s temperature back to normal. They couldn’t even get a reading when he first arrived.

Dunkin was completely hypothermic when he was found, with a temperature below 90 degrees. He was also covered in blood — his paws frozen to the wire metal cage — with a gunshot wound through the roof of his roof.

In spite of all that the dog has been through, humane agents say he should eventually be OK.

Animal Charity is still looking for the person who shot the dog and asks those with information to call their humane division at 330-788-1064.
