On December 30, Brenton Sutton thought a friend was knocking on his front door. Instead, he was confronted by several armed, masked men. One of them shot his Rottweiler, Roxy, before they fled the scene empty-handed.
As soon as the shot was fired, Sutton, fearing for his own life, ran out his back door and jumped the fence to his neighbor’s yard. Minutes later, he returned with a knife and expected to find Roxy dead. Miraculously, she was alive — but she was bleeding profusely.
