It was a close call for a Wisconsin family. This comes after a stray bullet hit their pet dog.

The bullet barely missed, dog owner, Shakyra Ellis’ 15-year old son who was walking the pet.

"It went in the leg. It actually didn't hit the bone, and it went through the flesh," Ellis said.

For 4-month old Buddy, life has just became difficult. After being tagged by a bullet. the dog was rushed to a local animal shelter.
 
While at the shelter something amazing had occurred for the family. By the time the dog was out of surgery, complete strangers who about the dog through Facebook decided to pitch in towards medical expenses.

"Buddy is ready to play. He wants the cast off. He wants the thing off his head. He is ready to play, back to himself, thank God," Ellis said.

Within a few hours, Ellis said her family saw the worse and the best of their community.
