A dog took a bullet for his best friend — and survived — after a trio of robbers jumped his master on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights.
from the NY Daily News:
The pooch’s 26-year-old owner was walking on Eastern Parkway near Troy Ave. in Crown Heights when the three muggers ran up to him about 4 a.m. on Friday.
When one of the suspects pulled a gun, the dog yelped, startling the crook, officials said. The jumpy gunman fired off one round, hitting the dog in the lower back.
As the dog reeled in pain, the muggers stole the victim’s cell phone and ran off, officials said.
Police are still searching for the perpetrators.
The dog was taken to a veterinary hospital and is expected to survive.
