Dog hurt by knife-wielding burglary suspect healing

August 17, 2013

The dog that was injured on Aug. 4 by a knife-wielding burglar has returned to his Comanche Cove home, officials said.

A second dog that was in the home at the time had to be euthanized because of the severity of its injuries.

The surviving dog, a basset hound, was being treated at a local veterinarian office. His major injuries were to his chest and hip, according to Animal Control Sergeant Kelly McNab.

McNab said he is healing and was “the sweetest dog” – not complaining despite all the pain.

“He did not fuss at all. He just took it,” McNab said. “He is going to make it.”

The suspect in the crime, Ronald Sidney Bishop, 17, is facing two felony charges – burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony as well as cruelty to animals.

He remained in the Hood County Jail on bonds totaling $55,000 as of press time.

The Hood County Animal Lovers Organization (HALO) was able to help with the medical expenses, McNab noted.
