UPDATE(02/26) 11:39 A.M.: Sugar, the dog shot by a passing car on Sunday afternoon is expected to make a full recovery. Teresa Everett who we spoke with on Monday says that no surgery is required and the bullet did not stay in Sugar’s neck as they originally suspected. They will now continue cleaning her wound and keeping her on antibiotics.
The Everett family credit the community’s support through their GoFundMe for their ability to send Sugar to the vet. They are still waiting to hear from the County investigator.
MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — Teresa Everett says her daughter was home when someone in a passing car fired a shot at their home, striking their dog Sugar.
Now, the family wants answers.
“I mean, what were your intentions period?” Everett tells News 5.
Everett says an investigator with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office has been put on the case.
In the cellphone video of the shooting, you can hear a gunshot, followed by crying. It later shows a blue Ford Taurus outside of the family’s home on Earlville Road near Citronelle.
Everett says her daughter took Sugar inside when the car drove off.
“I was upset,” said Everett. “I mean I didn’t know if my dog at first was dead or alive.”
The Everett family is now waiting to hear back from investigators.
