LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A dog is sitting up, eating well and even wagging his tail less than a week after someone attempted to decapitate him in Henderson County, according to The Arrow Fund.

The black lab, named Mooney, was flown to the BluePearl Animal Hospital in Louisville for treatment on May 28 where caregivers discovered in addition to the wound on his neck, he had bite wounds on his body, his right shoulder was swollen and he tested positive for heartworm.

As of Monday, The Arrow Fund said Mooney's neck wounds have been treated and bandaged. Veterinarians are also keeping a close watch on his bite wounds.

Even though he still has a long recovery ahead foster and adoption applications for Mooney are now being accepted. For more information visit The Arrow Fund's website by clicking here.
