A police dog that was hit by a bullet is back home with his handler and recovering.

The North Richland Hills Police Department shared an updated photo of the K-9 named Koba.

He was shot last week after being caught in the crossfire between police and a suspect.

Police said Koba’s protective vest likely saved his life.

The suicidal man was wounded by officers but survived.
