Authorities said the business buried the dog before notifying police.

I cannot believe someone shot

I cannot believe someone shot this dog. I worked at Maxim several years ago and this dog was very protective, yet mild mannered. She was actually a stray that the employees took in and looked after. What is wrong with people that they would kill this dog for no good reason? I'm just glad I don't work in that area anymore...I'm now worried for those who do.

I know it is hard to do but I

I know it is hard to do but I would go to the shelter and find another dog in need and ALSO put $30 cam high up facing street and connect to a old VCR inside set to record at night. I would love to catch the punk scum that murdered your watchdog.

I would love to sit there at night with my Smith & Wessons and wait for these cretins to come back and break in....a little retroactive birth control. Think I'm kidding? I'm not. I spent nearly seven years in another county doing just that.

Someone that would do this to

Someone that would do this to a dog, isn't far from doing it to a human being, too. My first thought was that the business is being primed and targeted for theft. I hope whoever did this gets caught and the book thrown at them.

I hate to hear this news. I drive by there and always look for the beautiful dog. I hope they find out who did this. They should be put in jail and serve time.

Anyone who would kill a watch

Anyone who would kill a watch dog would also kill an employee that might be working late and alone. They need to be taken down....permanently.

They need security cameras

They need security cameras and an armed guard after hours. That would help put these Neanderthals behind bars for a good long time. I hope the company will consider taking measures...
