Rochester Police are investigating the shooting of a dog.
Officers discovered the animal on Ackerman Street Thursday evening. Police say the tan and white dog was shot in the right hind leg and say it's likely the femur bone was broken.
Police took the animal to the city animal shelter where it is being treated and is in stable condition.
"Police responded and there is an unknown assailant who shot the dog, so if anyone has any information about this incident they should contact Rochester Police Department through 911 or the Humane Society at Lollypop Farm at 585-223-6500," said Chris Fitzgerald, Director of Rochester Animal Services.
Police say the dog had a black collar, but no tags.
