ANAHEIM (CNS) – Bruno, the police dog who was shot by a suspect and severely wounded, will be going home to continue his recovery.

Bruno, who was with his human partner Officer R.J. Young when he was shot by a suspect on March 20, was severely wounded.

Immediately after the shooting in the area of West Street and La Palma Avenue, Young drove Bruno to the Yorba Regional Animal Hospital where he would undergo several surgeries as he struggle to survive.

Bruno was helped to survive by an overwhelming amount of support not only from the local community but internationally.

Bruno’s injuries were career-ending.

A news conference has been scheduled for Friday at the hospital to discuss his retirement. Dr. Steven Dunbar from the animal hospital and Anaheim police and city officials will talk about his retirement. Bruno himself will make only a brief appearance.

A day with media and the community is still being planned when Bruno actually is retiring.
