Rico, the Petaluma Police dog seriously injured in training this week, was recovering Friday after surgery to treat a broken bone in his neck.
The 8-year-old Belgian Malinois suffered a spinal injury and other internal damage when he fell off a second-story ledge during training Monday night.
"The surgery went well. He's wagging his tail, alert, moving his legs," police Lt. Tim Lyons said Friday. "For the long-term prognosis, we'll still have to wait and see how he progresses, but he's moving through it."
