Garcia is currently in custody as authorities continued to piece together a motive, and how the suspect came to be possession of Jimmy; the dog's owners have reportedly yet to be identified.
Fortunately, Jimmy seems determined to persevere.
"His prognosis looks very good," Laura Ivan, the vet aiding in Jimmy's recovery, told the news outlet. "He has a little bit of a residual head tilt which basically implies that he is off-balance a little bit, which when they tilt their head they're actually seeing straight ahead of us. But he's been happy, he wags his tail a lot, he's active, he's eating."
