Therapists said Wednesday that Bosco, the Zanesville police dog wounded in the line of duty, is continuing to make amazing progress and has begun taking steps on his own.
The Dutch Shepherd was shot and wounded while he and his human partner, Officer Mike Schiele, attempted to serve a warrant in August.
Schiele was also injured, suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.
Bosco has been undergoing treatment and rehabilitation at the Ohio State University Veterinarian Hospital since being wounded. The dog was initially paralyzed but has since regained movement in his legs.

Bosco can now stand on his own and walk a few steps, although he tires easily.
"He's been a real trouper through all of this and very tolerant of all the rehab we put him through, said Jennifer Au with the Ohio State University Veterinary Hospital. "He makes a little progress every day, which is great."
