PAWS has taken in the bull mastiff that someone chained to a tree and shot at Forest Hill Park last week.
Cleveland Heights Mayor Ed Kelley reported on the city's website that the dog needs medical care and that PAWS is accepting donations for his treatment.

The dog was discovered by a professional dog walker Monday, Nov. 26. She called police and took the animal to a clinic, the Plain Dealer reported.
Cleveland Heights Police are investigating the incident.
