A Roseville police dog wounded by a burglary suspect Friday continues to recover, though it remains unclear whether the animal will regain the use of his rear legs.

Major, a Roseville K-9, regained full consciousness following emergency surgery at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center for a cut to his neck and spinal injuries, Roseville police said Saturday. A chest tube is in place for a collapsed lung.

"Major's mental condition has improved," Roseville police Chief Rick Mathwig said in a statement Saturday.

The alleged perpetrators of the burglary in Maplewood were two men from Maplewood, ages 20 and 21, and a 21-year-old man from Mahtomedi. They have yet to be charged.
