WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — A Terre Haute police dog shot and injured during a gun battle that killed a Terre Haute police officer has been released from a Purdue University veterinary clinic.
WLFI-TV says the dog named Shadow was released Thursday afternoon.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Joe Watts said the dog was returning to Terre Haute and might make a brief appearance Monday at the funeral of its handler/partner, Officer Brent Long, on Monday at Indiana State University's Hulman Center.
Long and Shadow were shot Monday by a man who was being served an arrest warrant.
Purdue's Dr. Tony Johnson tells the Journal & Courier that he expects Shadow to make a full recovery after suffering a broken jaw in the shooting. The dog also needed a blood transfusion.
