Nashville Police spokeswoman Kris Mumford said police are still searching for the suspect, who fled on foot. Mumford said the dog was taken to an emergency vet and will make a full recovery, and the owner was treated at a local hospital and released.

Police are still trying to determine why the dog was stabbed. Mumford said the dog may have surprised the suspect.
