The story, that a K-9 named Arlo was shot in the line of duty in Thurston County, Washington, made waves in local news for weeks " and even garnered national attention.

But not to worry, thanks to efforts from the community and law enforcement, K-9 Arlo was on his way to a speedy recovery. The only problem?

The only bullets that were fired came from the police.
