Who leaves loaded guns sitting around where dogs can hit them?

I am concerned about King George. If you’ll notice the pet parent’s girlfriend is afraid he will harm the Dane. Can someone in the Memphis area adopt this dog quickly before he suffers some sort of abuse?

Dog Shoots Owner in the Back in Memphis, Tennessee
Wednesday, August 01, 2007

A Memphis, Tenn., man is in critical condition Wednesday after his dog shot him in the back.

Police say King George, a 150-pound Great Dane, accidentally knocked a .22-caliber pistol off his owner’s end table around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. The gun went off, hitting his 21-year-old owner in the back, MyFOXMemphis.com reports.

“I knew he was smart, I didn’t think he was that smart,” the victim’s fiancee, Miesha Lucas told MyFOXMemphis.com. “He was always protective. I didn’t think he would be like that.”

Police refused to name the victim as they do not plan to file charges in the shooting, which they’ve ruled as accidental.

Lucas told MyFOXMemphis.com that she fears what her fiance will do to the pet once he gets out of the hospital.
