The dog who was found shot in the head and face with a pellet gun, stuffed in a garbage bag and left to die earlier this month was released from a Texas veterinary clinic on Saturday, following eye surgery paid for by a Facebook campaign.

The 3-year-old male mixed breed--nicknamed "Buck"--had the estimated $3,000-to-$5,000 surgery at the North Houston Veterinary Clinic on Thursday to repair entry wounds to both of his eyes.

"Buck is sleeping comfortably now," Tami Augustyn, the woman who first rushed him to the hospital and has since adopted him, wrote on Facebook. "He's been through a lot this past 7 days and he deserves the rest to help him continue to heal."

It's too early to tell if Buck's vision was permanently damaged, according to Dr. Marc Rainbow, the ophthalmologist who performed the surgery.

The bag containing the dog was discovered tied to a fence in Conroe, Texas, earlier this month. When local residents opened the bag, the canine emerged, took a few steps and collapsed, according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter.

Buck was covered in blood, Augustyn said, leading her to believe he was a "bait dog"

If they catch the *******s who did this....they should tie them up and give them the same treatment....at the very least tie a steak around their necks and let the dog go wild.
