UC Davis veterinarians say that they are hopeful they can partially reconstruct the jaw of a dog that lost much of its jaw to a gunshot.

Lad, a 9-month-old, tan-and-white rough collie, arrived from Kentucky on Monday. He has only three teeth on one side of his lower jaw and two on the other.

The dog’s owners and veterinarians have declined to comment until after test results are complete, but UCD released a statement saying that Lad appeared to be in good general health. Pending the test results, he may undergo one or more surgical procedures no sooner than 10 days from now.

According to the Arrow Fund, a nonprofit organization raising money for Lad’s care, the dog arrived near death at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners in Louisville, Ky., about six days after being shot in the muzzle. Veterinarians there removed the lower portion of the dog’s jaw in order to get rid of severely infected tissue.

Rebecca Eaves, founder of The Arrow Fund, which provides medical treatment for animals that have suffered torture, abuse or neglect, accompanied Lad to UCD. Pilots N Paws, which provides transport for animals in need, arranged the flight.
