Orville the dog was found immobile in a ditch on Feb. 24 in Brome Lake, a community in Quebec's Eastern Townships region.
After a few difficult days, Orville stunned his shelter handlers by recovering most of his functions. They have called his progress a miracle.
The shelter's management has announced in a brief post online today that it wants Orville to tour schools and homes for the elderly.
The shelter in Cowansville, Que., says Orville will become a symbol of the fight against animal cruelty.
Orville is "living proof that cruelty exists and that it must stop" the centre said on its Facebook page.
The shelter's director filed a complaint with police after an X-ray showed that the dog had been shot behind the ear with a .22-calibre weapon.
The shattered bullet can't be removed and will always remain lodged in the head of the two-year-old Australian shepherd.
Quebec provincial police say an investigation into alleged animal cruelty is ongoing.Suggest a correction
