Jethro, a police dog who was shot three times in the face, shoulder and neck during a burglary investigation in north-eastern Ohio, has died.

The shooting happened early on Saturday morning, as Canton police investigated an alarm at a grocery store. Police first said Jethro, a three-year-old German shepherd, was expected to recover from his wounds.

The Police K-9 Association kept the public informed of Jethro’s condition with posts to its Facebook page as officers attended the veterinary clinic where he lay. As the story developed, a blogger started a gofundme.com page to pay for his care and purchase new bullet proof vests for police dogs.

On Saturday night, one post read: “We are still here keeping the faith. According to the vet he is making progress, however slowly. Still battling the brain swelling which comes from nasty head trauma.
