SPOKANE, Wash. —

The Spokane County sheriff's office says a police dog wounded by a suspect is expected to make a full recovery.

KHQ-TV reports it will not have surgery.

The dog was shot Tuesday night after tracking a reckless driving suspect into a Spokane alley. The dog's officer-handler returned fire and killed the suspect, 22-year-old Johnnie Longest. The car he had been driving was stolen.
