Belton, TX – Erin Bately’s home was burglarized last Friday – but the thieves stole much more than her material goods.
Bately’s dog, a German shepherd named Kobi, was shot while attempting to protect his family’s home.
Evidence in the house suggests that Kobi was able to frighten the intruders into a room within the house – but even a shepherd’s intimidating bark is no match for a gun.
Whoever broke into the home severely injured the heroic German shepherd.
Now Kobi is recovering at the Belton Veterinary Clinic. Veterinarians found that the bullets narrowly missed Kobi’s main arteries..and his heart.
All in all, he is fortunate to be alive. But the shots to his body took a huge toll.
Right now, he is partially paralyzed. The veterinarian is hopeful that he will regain some function – just how much is unknown at this time.
Kobi’s veterinary expenses are going to be difficult for this single mother of three to handle – but she intends to do the best that she can for her devoted friend.
After all, he was injured while doing his best to protect his family’s home.
