When two Boston police officers arrived at the scene of the shooting, they found 18-year-old Dashaye Mizhari and his dog Felony, badly wounded. According to the report, Felony jumped in from of Mizhari to protect him from the shooter. Once they were sure Mizhari was being helped and sent off to the hospital, the officers loaded Felony into a police cruiser and took her to Angell Animal Medical Center.
While there, the police found out that there was simply going to be no way for Mizhari to cover the emergency medical bills. The cost was over $1,500. Officers David Lanteigne, Brian Smith and Sgt. Tommy Brooks didn’t want to stand by and let this poor dog die, so they all chipped in and paid for Felony’s surgery.
Poor Felony is not yet out of the woods. There’s still a lot of on-going care that she will need for a full recovery, and it isn’t going to be cheap. Lilly the Hero Pit Bull Fund has set up a charity fund for Felony to help out with these bills. While both Felony and Mizhari recover, they will need all the help they can get.
