FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A German shepherd belonging to a Fresno store owner is recovering from losing an eye after being beaten by a burglar.

The Fresno Bee reports the 9-year-old dog, Flash, lost her right eye when she was struck with a weapon wielded by the crook, who was after radio scanners and other merchandise at Sparky's, an electronics store.

Owner Cheryl Cook tells the newspaper she isn't sure whether Flash was beaten out of fear that she was a guard dog or out of simple cruelty. Cook says Flash, who was alone in the store during the burglary, is more of a friendly pet than a guard dog.

After surgery, Flash was back at the store Monday, appearing chipper and sweet despite her injuries.

Cook is planning to offer a reward for the arrest of the burglar.
