Dog Survives Gunshot Wound To The Head Defending His Owner Against An Intruder

In Florida, a dog is miraculously alive after being shot in the head as he was defending his home against a burglar.

Anubis, a five-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, was all alone in the house when the burglary happened. When his owner, Chris Watson, got home from work at around 11 am, he discovered that his house has been burglarized. He immediately called for his dog Anubis, but he didn’t respond. When the police arrived, they found Anubis, hiding in the bedroom.
