'Luckiest dog in the world' survives being shot with arrow

WARNING: Some may find the below photo disturbing and graphic.

A stray dog is on the mend after somebody shot her in the back with an arrow in Regina, Canada. Caillin Rodonets, who runs a dog rescue group called CCResQs, said she got a call from a woman who found a dog bleeding on her property.

The dog, which she called Arrow, was operated on at a veterinarian clinic. The doctor said that Arrow is "the luckiest dog in the world" because the projectile missed her spinal cord by millimeters.
 
According to a CCResQs Facebook post, Arrow has broken pieces of vertebrae floating around in her body still, so she's not out of the woods yet. Doctors, however, anticipate that Arrow will make a full recovery with a couple of weeks of rest, along with pain medications and antibiotics. A foster home has already agreed to take her in and give her a loving home as she heals.
 
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been notified, but they currently have no leads to go on.
