Dog shooting was unnecessary


I was quite disturbed to hear of the senseless and unnecessary shooting of a dog around Labor Day.

Someone took the life of a friend of mine. This dog was family; people loved him! He was a friendly pup, not a feral dog nor an attack dog.

He wore a brightly colored collar and was obviously well cared for. He was playful and well-mannered and captured the hearts of all who met him with his kind eyes.
