In Farmington, New Mexico, an abandoned puppy was shot in the hind leg with a crossbow, leaving the poor dog in serious pain (video below).

A local animal shelter removed the crossbow arrow from the puppy’s leg and transferred him to a facility in Durango, Colorado.

The Durango facility told CBS Denver that they’ve named the 3-month-old Jack Russell/Shepherd mix 'Bow.' He’s expected to be adopted sometime soon.

Farmington police are asking citizens who may know something about the crossbow shooting to call them at (505) 599-1070.
