A couple was touring a property with their doggo somewhere in Northern California. They were with a listing agent and wanted to buy the property so their doggos can run freely.
– A dog was with its owners when they were visiting a property.
– The property was supposed to be bought because it is a huge area where the dogs can run freely.
– Unfortunately, another property owner in the area shot the dog and it died.
However, an unfortunate incident took place wherein one of the doggos of the couple was fatally shot by another property owner in the area. According to reports, the doggo is a Blue Coonhound named Sophie and is owned by Stacy Ramsey and Douglas Pietz. The shooting incident took place last Thursday.
During the incident, the two dogs of the couple were with them. The listing agent allegedly let Sophie be off-leash and later, the shooting happened. They were about to leave when they heard the shots and the dog owners were about to call the doggos so they can already get in the car. When they heard the shot, they ran towards the area where it came from and saw that Sophie was lying on the ground lifeless. The neighbor remained standing with his gun in his hand and reportedly told the dog owners, “F**k you, come get your dog.” What made the incident sadder was that Sophie used to be a hunting dog and was so afraid of guns so it was put up for adoption. Ramsey said, “She died at the hands of what she was most afraid of.”
Ramsey said in a statement that the shooting is hard to process for them and they are really sad about it. The dog owners also said that Sophie was such a sweet dog and they believe the dogs were not trespassing. The matter is now under investigation.
