Drago, a Belgian Malinois, gets a visit from Deputy John Halk at a veterinary hospital in Sacramento on Friday. The dog was hit by a shot fired by a fleeing suspect in the Elverta area. He was hit by a slug that went through his chest and out his shoulder. Halk said Drago did what he was trained to do: help save officers from getting shot while in search of a suspect.
