Toledo, Ohio — Two Toledo men are facing animal cruelty charges after allegedly taking turns to shoot one of their own caged dogs.

Lawrence Mick, 57, and Adam Collins, 35, are said to have together fired at least six shots at Mick’s German shepherd, named Sarge, in the backyard of his East Toledo home Friday evening.   

Sarge, who witnesses say was caged and howling when being shot at, miraculously survived being shot in the head and chest and is now recovering at the Lucas County dog pound.  He still has six bullets lodged inside his body.

Police say Mick alleged his dog had bitten him and that his friend, Collins, shot the dog who he deemed was vicious.

Both Mick and Collins have been charged with cruelty to animals, inducing panic, giving false information to a police officer, and discharging firearms.  Collins pleaded no contest to the charges on Monday and will be sentenced on Jul. 21.  Mick has been released from custody on his own recognizance and will next be in court on Jul. 21.
