WASHINGTON, Ind. -- Cats may have nine lives, but a beagle named "Sport" seems to have a bit of extra luck too.
A lightning bolt hit a tree and traveled through a chain tethering Sport.

The dog reportedly left four black paw prints on the concrete where he was standing outside a home in Washington, Indiana.

Sport's owner found him panting, bleeding from a paw and with a hot body.

A trip to the vet revealed no serious injury.

The lightning damaged the house belonging to Sport's owners and blew all the appliance cords out of the sockets.

the dude left his dog tied like that in a lightning storm?
