The Daviess County man accused of shooting his dog in the face back in February makes his initial court appearance this morning.

You probably remember Lad. The collie was found shot in the face near Maceo, Kentucky. Officials say he appeared to be starving at the time. Since then, the dog has been recovering at a Louisville animal hospital.

His owner, 28-year-old Matthew Beauchamp is charged with torturing the dog. He has since bonded out of jail but is due back in court May 27.
