Police and the owner of a English Mastiff puppy, named Jackson, are looking for answers after it was shot with a pellet gun over the weekend and suffered 27 wounds.

Twenty BBs were pulled from Jackson, as well as seven pellets. Even though the vet pulled 27 bullets from underneath Jackson's skin, he's expected to be just fine. 

According to a Facebook post, the puppy was shot inside a fenced yard at his home.
