MPD tells me the owner took the dog to an animal hospital for treatment of its injuries. It’s unclear of the status right now but will update when/if more becomes known.

From MPD:

“Fifth District detectives are investigating an armed robbery that occurred in the 1600 block of Franklin Street, NE at approximately 7pm on the evening of November 9th. The victim of the robbery was exiting his vehicle when he was approached by a man with a gun who took several items of value from the victim. After obtaining the items the suspect attempted to run to an awaiting vehicle, but the victim’s dog, who was in the car at the time of the robbery, jumped from the vehicle and attacked the robber. A second suspect waiting in the car fired a single shot, striking the dog.

Suspect 1 was then able to get into the vehicle, and they made good their escape. The victim described the person who robbed him as a black or Hispanic male with a light complexion wearing all dark clothing and a face mask. The getaway vehicle was described as a dark red sedan with tinted windows. Anyone with information related to this crime is encouraged to call MPD at 202-727-9099, or text the information to 5-0-4-1-1.”
