A Daviess County, Kentucky man is facing a felony charge for torture of a dog.
Sources tell 14News that the dog is 'Lad' the collie, and the man who was indicted is Lad's owner.
28-year-old Matthew Wade Beauchamp was indicted by a grand jury on Tuesday.
Lad was found in the Maceo area in February. He'd been shot in the jaw and was severely malnourished.
Lad is currently at the University of California - Davis being treated for an infection in his jaw.
Once the infection is cleared up, they will determine if he is a candidate for reconstructive surgery.
