A deputy shot an old Labrador Retriever, possibly as she walked away from him. The deputy was looking for a juvenile at the residence. The owner of the home asked the deputy to wait while he put his dogs up. One of the dogs aparently was outside on her property and approached from the side of the office. The officer felt threatened. The owner called the dog over. The dog was shot from behind, with the bullet going through the back leg and coming out the front.
Recently, the Frederick County Sheriff's Office offered to pay $2,500 for the medical costs.
