On December 30, 2016, Brenton Sutton was at home with his rottweiler, Roxy. When Brenton heard a knock at his front door, he assumed it was a friend he’d been waiting for, so he didn’t hesitate to open it.
Instead of a friend, though, Brenton was confronted by a group of masked, armed men.Roxy immediately went to greet the company,but before she had a chance to realize that she didn’t recognize the guests,the robbers shot her.
Brenton explained on the GoFundMe page he set up for his pup:“Roxy was barking at the back sliding glass door which always means someone or something is out in the front yard. I let her in & she bolted to the front door. I had beenexpecting a buddy to come hang out and watch the Boston Celtics game. So when I went to open the front door Iassumed it was my friend I was expecting.
“I opened the door & Roxy wedged herself out onto the front stepto greet whoever was here as she always does.When I opened the front door I saw a light-skinned male that did not look familiar. Before I could react in anyway Roxy got through the front door &was immediately shot from point-blank range, arms-length away from me.”
