Dog miraculously survives bullet to the head in Tennessee
(CNN) - A Tennessee family’s pet Lab is being celebrated as a hero after alerting the neighborhood to the presence of an armed criminal.
“Gus” went after the convicted felon, who pulled a gun and shot him in the head. The noise alerted neighbors in the Brentwood subdivision who then called police.
Home security video helped police capture the suspect, 20-year-old Kequan Waller.
Gus was taken to the veterinarian, where he jumped off the stretcher and walked into the building himself.
Since the shooting, the Golden Labrador has made a full recovery and earned a new nickname, “superdog.”
His owners, the Dixon family, have even made Gus a superhero cape to celebrate his new found fame.
