Doctors optimistic about Bodi's condition | News
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Doctors originally believed K9 Bodi would spend the rest of his life blind - but as time helps heal wounds, Bodi's condition is improving.
Bodi greeted media this afternoon with a wagging tail at the Taylor Crossing Animal Hospital. The dog will remain under veterinary care until early next week and in three weeks the doctors will re-evaluate his eyesight.
Bodi did sustain three gunshot wounds to the face. His left eye had to be removed but doctors say some sight is returning to his right eye. At the time of the shooting, Bodi was only three weeks away from retirement.
As with any police officer, all of Bodi's medical bills will be taken care of. However, the Montgomery Police Department is taking donations for anyone wishing to help with rising veterinary expenses. You can mail-in or take donations to police headquarters.
