(WEST LAFAYETTE, IN) - A K-9 wounded in the police shooting that killed an officer in Terre Haute is expected to make a full recovery after being taken to an emergency and critical care center on the campus of Purdue University.

Fallen Officer Brent Long's partner, "Shadow," is being treated for a gunshot wound that shattered the back part of his jaw.

Dr. Anthony Johnson, who serves as a Professor at the Purdue University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, says the K-9 is interacting with handlers and eating food after receiving a blood transfusion.

Long notes officers have been "constantly" by shadow's side following the death of his partner.

The incident is also making an impression on those charged with treating the K-9.

Long says shadow could potentially return to the force, but it's up to the long family to make that decision.

The K-9 may also retire and live with long's wife and two kids.
