    Great Dane Accidentally Shoots Owner In Back

    A Memphis, Tenn., man is in critical condition Wednesday after his dog shot him in the back.

    Police say King George, a 150-pound Great Dane, accidentally knocked a .22-caliber pistol off his owner's end table around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. The gun went off, hitting his 21-year-old owner in the back, MyFOXMemphis.com reports.

    "I knew he was smart, I didn't think he was that smart," the victim's fiancee, Miesha Lucas told MyFOXMemphis.com. "He was always protective. I didn't think he would be like that."

    Police refused to name the victim as they do not plan to file charges in the shooting, which they've ruled as accidental.

    Lucas told MyFOXMemphis.com that she fears what her fiance will do to the pet once he gets out of the hospital.

    The shooting occurred in the Raleigh section of Memphis.

    I agree with Jena. Don't have a dog. Get a cat. Cats are not lethal.

    If the fiancee really believes that the dog would come to harm if/when the guy gets out of the hospital, then the dog needs to find a new home with smarter owners. Last time I checked, you just don't leave a loaded POS on the end table.

    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    They were going to file charges against the dog?

    What kind of gun goes off when it's dropped from three feet?

    Am I incorrect in saying that all guns have a safety switch? The safety should have been on!

    I have never seen a gun up close, so I'm not sure.

    Cynical part of me wonders if the fiancee did it and blamed the dog.

    Looking at the other videos, yeah. That dog looks WAY underweight, I don't care what the humane society investigator says. Idiot fiancee claims the dog has his own bedroom complete with TV.
