TIPPAH COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA)- A family in Tippah County is hurting and hoping law enforcement arrest the person responsible for shooting their dog.

Bonnie Miskelly, the dog owner, says she got up to take her grandson to school and noticed blood coming from the dog's eye.

"We didn’t really know at first what had happened to him," Miskelly said. "I called my daughter-in-law, she came and picked him up. We took him to the vet and they said Cash had been shot."

It is still unclear if Cash was in their yard or roaming around the neighborhood.

According to law enforcement, an arrest will be made in the next day or two.
