An encouraging update about a dog shot this weekend in Lakeville.

The police chief says the dog is now able to walk on his own.

The German Shepherd named Major was shot in a store parking lot Saturday.

Jon Hanley, 52, is accused in the shooting and is charged with preliminary criminal recklessness.

Witnesses tell police the dog got away from its owner but was on a leash.

Police say Major was barking at the suspect when the suspect started antagonizing the dog and threatening to shoot him, before grabbing a handgun and doing it.
