MONTROSE - The Montrose County sheriff is looking for whoever shot a dog in the head and left her in a canal.
Sheriff Rick Dunlap said Wednesday that a woman found the yellow Labrador retriever crawling out of the canal on Tuesday.
The Montrose Daily Press reported that the dog, named Bella, was shot with a small caliber weapon in the top of her head.
She survived without loss to vision or other impairments.
She was placed in foster care and was later returned to her owners, who noted that the dog ran away on Sunday.
The Montrose County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information about the incident to call 970-252-4023.
