Our GSD was shot in his own yard by a police officer please visit Vinny at: This site is to help Vinny our German Shepard dog that was shot by a Leander TX police officer in his fenced yard. The officer was serving a warrant at the wrong house and entered the yard unannounced and fired 3 rounds. Vinny deserves justice!!!!

    Thank goodness Vinny wasn't killed! So sick of all these stories of police officers shooting dogs on their own property... in fenced yards, in houses, it doesn't seem to matter how contained the dog is... and I get that mistakes happen, but they keep responding without any compassion and like it isn't a big deal. Hoping for a speedy recovery |:|

    Good afternoon all, First I would like to apologize for our lack of communication... Since Vinny's surgery to have the bullet removed we have all been focusing on his care as well as getting a bit of rest. Vinny pulled out his tubes but thanks to my daughter Val's efforts we are keeping it very clean and it is still draining well. Vinny still has a long road to travel until he is back up and running but as long as we can keep the infection away, we are looking forward to many more happy years with our boy. We want to thank everyone for their support and for your kind thoughts and well wishes in this difficult time.
