Punishment for shooting someone's dog really depends on why you did it.

There's two possibilities that spring immediately to mind.

1. You're a spineless worm not fit to live among humans.

2. You're a psychotic animal killer just waiting for your next chance to end a life without jail risk.

Both of those situations are bad, and you should not be allowed even a pointy stick, let alone a gun. But there's a remote chance this dog really was a lethal threat and the cop did a clean shooting. I seriously doubt this was the case, but it's there.

I still think he should be kicked off the force and in the nuts, repeatedly.

Awwwww damn it. I hadn't read it yet and assumed it was something more along the lines of pitbull or other similar breed. Blue heelers are awesome and usually very smart. Obviously I don't support shooting any dog except in extreme cases, but hearing it's a heeler makes me even sadder about this.

Now, I say this with just the article to go off, but I can understand why someone might feel threatened by one though. My MIL's blue heeler, despite his age, can still knock a person over if he wants to and runs right at them - he almost knocked me over one day just because I was between him and the frisbee someone threw. He also barks very loudly and urgently when unknown people enter the yard (in cars or whatever). It is pretty intimidating if you're on the receiving end, especially if he is feeling aggressive and protective.

Fortunately, he thinks I'm his pack member :)

He shot a dog that had just had puppies. Goddamnit, they didn't need to show a picture of the puppies.

It sounds like Sophie was acting like a Heeler. The cops would certainly have to shoot my Heeler too, she doesn't take kindly to loud strangers around her people.

Yeah for this reason among many I'd never call law enforcement to my house. I very much enjoy the company of my corgi. With my luck they'd be itchy and shoot a fleeing cat, or the caged rabbits.
Always a bit worried about driving around with my dog in the car. If I get pulled over, stubs ain't gonna be happy about seeing a guy in uniform :(

Hopefully the puppies help the family through their time of loss, and that they can resolve their domestic issues in a peaceful fashion in the future.

Cops with very few exception are terrified psychotic little animal torturers who fantasize constantly about using our taxpayer-funded training to kill someone or something.

Sadly for them, in their long pathetic career a family pet is the best the vast majority can get away with.

According to my vet they are because they're over 40 lbs, but I've had much bigger dogs in my time. They think they're bigger than they are and indestructible and they damn near are.

My dog is part heeler. She had a litter (her first and last) this year, 8 puppies! She was fairly protective of them, and she's prone to barking at strangers at the best of times (and cats, and birds, and kids on bikes, and anyone holding an umbrella).

She's never bitten anyone though and a cop who shot her would look pretty pathetic.

AbbeySomeone: He shot a dog that had just had puppies. Goddamnit, they didn't need to show a picture of the puppies.


Personally, I would armor police responding to calls so they can IGNORE a dog instead of shooting it. Unless it's a trained attack dog, you can get by with a hard plastic gauntlet on the left hand and or maybe some pepper spray. I'd much rather hear about cops shooting dogs with pepper spray than guns.

That said a biatch with new pups is going to react least friendly to a stranger then of all possible times in her life. It's highly possible he was threatened or even attacked by the dog. Look at how black bears are harmless until there's a cub involved.

Even still I've been attacked and threatened by all kinds of animals, only I've never needed to shoot any of them because my brain and dick are both larger than this cop's. Which is why he should have his guns taken away and be kicked in his tiny night stick until it's an innie.

As a kid had a large St Bernard.....If you were wearing a uniform, well lets just say you were on the menu......St. Bernards can be very fierce......A Highway Patrol pulls up in our yard one day and yep that dog was on the drivers door like black on Gaby or white on Phelps.......anyway...the cop stays put while the dog is trying to eat the creamy filling inside the car......He did not shoot.....surprise...he waited till the dog was secured and went about our business.......no drama lama was he.........this day and age of no patience, tolerance and lack of balls is truly appalling.

I got pulled over with a Mastiff in the car. He stuck his head out the window and drooled on the cop that was petting him. We didn't get ticketed either.

I've only called the cops once. Had a basement tenant that flipped out while on a coke (or meth) and booze bender.. she had myself and my girlfriend barricaded in my bedroom at knifepoint for 20 mins.. cops arrested her and promised to escort her back the next day to get her stuff. She shows up with no cops.. it was tense and scary. If it happened again, I would have just pulled the trigger on the shotgun I had aimed at the bedroom door when she was banging on it. At least then no one else would have to put up with her crazy shiat in the future.

/cops told us she had a "history" of domestic disturbance calls against her
//called the cops to complain about the lack of escort and asked for an apology. Officer and his superior never bothered to follow up on my daily phone calls.

If she had just let the officer do his job, her puppies (who ever their father may be), would still have a mother to suckle that sweet sweet EBT milk from.

Tasering dog is actually more fun but they're always pissed at you afterwards and can bite. Shoot the dog, save the taser for the owner.

Yeah, I am sure that the dog was just standing there all peaceful, tail wagging and the cop just thought to himself, "Finally! I get to shoot a farking dog!" Because, the fact that there had probably been a pretty big fight between the woman and her boyfriend with lots of screaming and yelling had no negative impact on a dog that had just had puppies and the presence of a stranger into that volatile situation did get the dog further worked up, because everyone knows that a female dog will not try to protect its puppies. Not saying that this was the case, but to me it is a hell of a lot more reasonable explanation than the rest of the farking derp that is flying around here.

A dog usually weighs about a third or less of an adult human male and the quadriceps are one of the more impressive muscle groups. You can kick a dog so easily even responsible pet owners sometimes do it by accident.

You can also use pepper spray, or a nightstick, or even your officer's hat if you have one. You can do a lot of things to deal with a dog attack without killing the dog. Imagine the outrage you'd feel if a cop shot a child that was armed with a knife.

A child with a knife can be very dangerous, but too innocent to blow away out of convenience. A dog is even more innocent than that child because unlike humans dogs don't speak English. You can't preemptively teach the dog the law. All you can do is deal with incidents as they arise. A child of an age to hold a knife, on the other hand, is of an age to speak and be spoken to.

It can be argued that a 12 year old waving a dagger around knows what he or she is doing is wrong and could easily inflict a fatal cut. If they're being unreasonable, you have to taze their ass or tackle them. But you can't shoot them because it's the quickest way. I'd like to see the same logic applied to all living creatures by LEOs. There are rules of engagement. That's the reason we have cops instead of just getting out own local armed gang to keep things at a low simmer like in Brazilian slums.
