Toledo dog shot six times moved to Utah pet sanctuary

Sarge, the German shepherd dog who was shot six times on July 9 in Toledo, has been transferred to Dog Town, a sanctuary in southwestern Utah near the Arizona border run by Best Friends Animal Society.

John Brown, Training and Behavior Coordinator for the Toledo Area Humane Society traveled with Sarge and Poppy, a second special needs dog, from the Detroit Metropolitan Airport Thursday morning.

They landed in Las Vegas and drove the three and a half hours to Best Friends.

Sarge's trip to Utah was delayed a couple times after he bit workers at the Humane Society.

Police say Sarge's owner and another man took turns shooting at sarge while he was in a cage.
