BURLESON COUNTY - A dog named Chance now has another chance to live - thanks to a loving adoptive family. Chance was found with a bullet wound on his head in Burleson County, and police say he'd been shot last month with a .22 rifle.

After some veterinary care, and a cleared infection, Chance was deemed healthy and was recently adopted. In a Facebook post, True Blue Animal Rescue's Melanie Deaeth says Joanne Klauber was the first person to send in an application, so when Chance healed, she met him, and Joanne and her husband Charles said they fell in love with him right away.

A family took the one-year-old Catahoula in shortly after he was found, and True Blue Animal Rescue in Brenham stepped forward to help in coordinating his medical care. Back at the beginning of April, DeAeth said Chance was a trooper throughout the exam and treatment.

If you know anything about this case of animal cruelty, you're asked to call the Burleson County Sheriff's office.
