Justice for Iraq War Veteran’s Therapy Dog Allegedly Shot by Neighbor

Target: John S. Foote, District Attorney

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the man who allegedly shot a 15-month-old therapy dog.

A 15-month-old therapy dog was shot after he allegedly wandered into a neighbor’s yard. The neighbor reportedly admitted to shooting the dog in order to protect his turkeys. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

The neighbor reportedly shot Sonny, the German shepherd puppy, in order to protect his turkeys. However, reports state that Sonny never entered the turkey cage. Sonny sustained serious injuries to the soft tissue of his neck and also suffered nerve damage in his back. He nearly died from his injuries.

Sonny provided an important service to his owner, a disabled Iraq war veteran, and did not deserve this aggressive attack. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear District Attorney Foote,

A therapy dog nearly died after he was reportedly shot by a neighbor. The dog was seriously injured and suffered tremendously. We demand the maximum penalty in this case.

Sonny, a 15-month-old German shepherd, reportedly harassed his neighbor’s turkeys. This allegedly prompted the neighbor to shoot him, an aggressive attack that nearly cost Sonny his life. Sonny suffered damage to the soft tissue of his neck and the nerves in his back, causing him great pain and discomfort.

While the neighbor rightfully had concerns, his reaction was extreme and unjustified. We demand the maximum penalty in this case.

    This man is horrible and should receive maximum punishment. This beautiful Shepherd was a baby and a vital part of the Veteran’s therapy and life. Whatever happened to a neighbor talking to a neighbor about concerns instead of turning violent and killing or injuring an animal. We had a Shepherd/Husky mix named Smokey who was majestic in appearance He lived two doors away from his sister Annie. The day before Thanksgiving he and his sister took off and Smokey never came back. I looked for days and a man from the next road over from our house called me and said that the man across the street had goats and he said he was going to kill that Rin Tin Tin dog. When Smokey’s sister was taken to the vet she had buckshot in her hind end. We never found Smokey and I never told my son until he was an adult. The only good thing that became of all of the heartbreak was we went to the shelter aand adopted Buster a Shepherd Collie Mix and he lived for 13 years.
