For volunteers, Gauge had probably been shot by a farmer who saw him as a threat to his cattle. Unfortunately, Idaho law allows him to do so.

The Malinois had been the victim of cruelty long before the shooting. The veterinarians have, in fact, discovered that he had the genitals enclosed with a rubber band. No doubt the attempt, on the part of a former owner, to castrate him by his own means. Which is illegal, however, in this state.
