    A Memphis, Tenn., man is in critical condition Wednesday after his dog shot him in the back.

    Police say King George, a 150-pound Great Dane, accidentally knocked a .22-caliber pistol off his owner's end table around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. The gun went off, hitting his 21-year-old owner in the back, MyFOXMemphis.com reports.

    "I knew he was smart, I didn't think he was that smart," the victim's fiancee, Miesha Lucas told MyFOXMemphis.com. "He was always protective. I didn't think he would be like that."

    Police do not plan to file charges in the shooting, which they've ruled as accidental.

    But Lucas told MyFOXMemphis.com that she fears what her fiance will do to the pet once he gets out of the hospital.

    She declined to give out her fiance's name.

    The shooting occurred in the Raleigh section of Memphis.

    Seems strange, but I've got no clues as to how else it could have happened.

    I have heard of things like this happening. One time the dog stepped on the gun, and it happened a stick had gotten though the trigger guard, and putting weight on it pushed the trigger back and ....BLAM!!! the dog's owner had a hole where God did not intend one to be.

    .

    Well, these days, the way are media is, I guess anything's possible.

    A whole lot could be read into that statement.
    And it would be supported by this one
    Why would the dog's protective nature be a factor in this, does the GF's fear of the BF's temper give us any insight

    All I can say is, if he intends to shoot a 150 lb great dane when he gets out of the hospital, he damned sure better get a bigger gun!!:D

    I've heard of people blaming dogs for broken lamps, trashed doors, lost home work, and certain "odors", but this????

    "Honey, I'm going out with the guys Friday."

    "sure dear"

    Guy turns around. Woman grabs gun. BLAM! Fido goes on point. Woman drops gun at fido's paws.

    "WHAT THE H**L WAS THAT!"

    "It was the DOG! HONEST!"

    I wouldn't trust my dogs with a loaded gun.
    Had one that drove my jeep into a gate post once- never trusted him to drive either, not after that.

    BS BS BS.

    A dropped pistol won't "go off" if it's anything like a modern gun and in good repair. My vote: 2:30 AM drunk boyfriend gets rough with GF; GF shoots BF; they gin up the story about the great dane doing it.
