ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Bruno, the Anaheim police dog hailed as a hero after he was shot trying to apprehend a man who had opened fire on officers, is going home from the hospital.
Police say the 7-year-old German Shepherd will make a brief appearance at a news conference Friday at Yorba Linda Regional Animal Hospital.
He'll then head home to continue his recuperation.
Bruno was severely wounded last month after he tracked Robert Moreno Jr. to an apartment complex the man had fled to after firing on probation officers trying to apprehend him.
Police officers shot Moreno dead after he wounded Bruno in the jaw and chest.
The dog had to undergo several surgeries.
People have showered Bruno with chew toys, dog treats and other gifts during his long hospitalization.
