The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in determining who shot and wounded a dog just north of Terrebonne.

Torrey Brittain, the owner of Jethro, found the 8-month-old shepherd and heeler mix bloodied and injured at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The dog had apparently been shot with a shotgun. The dog had last been seen about 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Neighbors to the home off of Northeast Eby Ave and Northeast First Street reported hearing a single gunshot between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Thursday, according to the Sheriff’s Office. While the dog is expected to survive, it will lose its left eye.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call the Deschutes County 911 Dispatch Center at 541-693-6911.
