Photo Gallery | PHOTOS: The medical progress of K-9 Bodie

Bodie, a 3-year-old K-9 serving with the Sacramento Police Department, was shot by a man suspected of stealing a car and leading officers on a chase in Sacramento Friday. Bodie had surgery for gunshot wounds to his jaw and paw.

As of Saturday Bodie was in still stable but critical condition. His body was rejecting the transfusions so his veterinarian did a cross match blood transfusion overnight, because his blood cell count was so low. It's early to tell if he's accepting that.  Bodie's other issue was the swelling of his tongue, which is also being addressed.

The Identity of the suspect who shot Bodie has not been released at the time of this post.

The Sacramento Police Department K9 Association has received a number of donations which can be used for Bodie's vet bills, which are expected to cost thousands of dollars.
