The family seeks justice after a neighbor shot and killed their dog

A Bracken County family seeks justice after a neighbor shot and killed their dog. Now, they are searching for answers and wondering how something like this could have happened. “I feel like I’ve lost a loved one,” Taylor Dunn said. “You never realize you miss him until he’s gone.” The beloved family member is Mills-Dan’s dog, Z. He wasn’t killed. He was killed. He wasn’t doing anything wrong, said Stephanie Mills Dunn, the dog’s owner. Mills Dunn says she was looking out her kitchen window on Labor Day when Z was on the line. Hearing her jump, she jumped into work and called her son. “He jumped in the car with me and we walked the way to my friend’s house, because he liked playing with their dogs and they weren’t outside so I knew he wasn’t there. So we got back from our house and he wasn’t in the driveway and we came back and saw him dead in the driveway,” Mills Dunn said. She says she found out her dog had been shot and killed in a driveway on Old Oakland Road and, according to a police report, her dog ran on a neighbor’s property. The resident claims that they shot Z with a shotgun to keep her from damaging or killing the animals there, but Mills Dunn says Z wasn’t evil. So it was clearly a family pet and not a rabid dog at large,” Mills Dunn said. The person accused of shooting the dog also mentioned in the police report that the dog killed 10 chickens about three weeks ago, but the owners of Z deny the allegations. Mills said Dan: “This dog may lick your face, but it will never hurt you.” “With regard to livestock, as I said, we have kittens. Nothing would ever hurt and I’d like to see proof that he did. I mean, I just saw him in the paper with the prompt.” Now, instead of celebrating Z’s second birthday next month, this family is grieving his loss. “No more car rides, no more snuggling, no more getting up and seeing him in the morning. “He’s gone,” Dan said. To date, there are no charges against the person accused of killing the dog on the police report. WLWT contacted them, but did not hear back.
