Shot-at dog, Sarge, bites caregivers at humane society

The Toledo Area Humane Society says it won't place Sarge in a private home because of the bites and the German shepherd's habit of snapping at people. But he could still go to a rescue group or animal sanctuary.
Police say the dog's owner, Lawrence Mick, and his friend, Adam Collins, had Sarge trapped in a cage on July 9 and took turns shooting at him. The animal was treated for six gunshot wounds.
The humane society says its dog trainer needed antibiotics for a deep bite to the hand on July 26. A veterinarian was bitten less seriously.
Mick has pleaded not guilty in the shooting. Collins pleaded no contest.
