(FoxNews.com) - A police dog that ran away after being wounded during a shooting that killed an Arkansas deputy was found alive and was recovering on Saturday, the Greenwood Police Department announced.

Police spokeswoman Kristin Faulkenberry told reporters the dog, named Kina, "was up and walking" when searchers found the animal Friday morning near where the shooting unfolded near Hackett, about 115 miles west of Little Rock.

The dog was shot and ran into a wooded area Wednesday when a man identified as Billy Monroe Jones opened fire on officers, killing Sebastian County Deputy Bill Cooper and wounding Hackett Police Chief Darrell Spells.

Police said the dog had two gunshot wounds and was taken to a veterinarian, but appeared to be recovering.
