LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A dog is sitting up, eating well and even wagging his tail less than a week after someone attempted to decapitate him in Henderson County, according to The Arrow Fund.

The black lab, named Mooney, was flown to the BluePearl Animal Hospital in Louisville for treatment on May 28 where caregivers discovered in addition to the wound on his neck, he had bite wounds on his body, his right shoulder was swollen and he tested positive for heartworm.
