SHARE Dog wounded in Chicago domestic dispute saved by vets at Skokie clinic

Veterinarians at a Skokie animal clinic say a dog that was shot in the head during a domestic dispute in Chicago is doing well in spite of some lingering problems.

Chicago police officers brought Sophie, a 6-year-old German shepherd mix, to BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Skokie shortly after she was shot on Wednesday.

Lauren Nazarian, a veterinarian at the clinic, said the wound affected Sophie’s balance but could have been much worse. The dog’s jaw was also injure, and she has bullet fragments in her neck and a shoulder, according to Nazarian, who said Sophie is already able to walk and eat.

Though concerns remain about her neurological injuries Nazarian said she’s optimistic Sophie will have a good quality of life.
