TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A man police say shot a non-violent German shepherd in east Toledo and his cousin were indicted on multiple charges Thursday.

Police say Marcus Crawford shot the stray dog on March 24.  He was indicted on weapons charges Thursday, but is still at large. Marcus Crawford's cousin, Gary Crawford, was indicted on intimidation and obstructing justice charges Thursday, but is in police custody.

The German shepherd, who has been named June, had to have her right front leg amputated as a result of the shooting. Since that surgery, she has been in the care of Planned Pethood.

"She comes in with a gunshot wound to the dog warden and she ends up having her leg amputated because of that and now she's adapting to walking on three legs," said Nikki Morey with Planned Pethod.

At home with a loving foster family now, June is doing just fine. Planned Pethood leaders say they believe she was a stray, and now she's recovering both socially and physically.

"When her fosters come home they're getting the happy tail and she's very enthusiastic to see them and she's getting used to walking on three legs," said Morey.

June's foster family says they're hoping she gains enough strength in her remaining front leg to not need any kind of sling or wheel to help her walk. Although she tires quickly, less than a week after surgery June is already up and moving around.

June's surgery was paid for by Cutie's Fund.

Donations can be made here: Lucas County Canine Care and Control's Cutie's Fund.
