Dog shot in the heart inside of her own yard

Dog perishes after being shot in the heart in her own fenced yard

A Utah family’s dog died after someone shot her in the heart while the dog was inside of her owner’s fenced-in yard. According to Sunday’s Fox 13 News, The cruel incident, which claimed the life of a five-year-old heeler named “Jazman,”  took place in Helper on Thursday morning.

Jazman’s owner, Dennis Marshall, is devastated – he told Fox 13 that the slain dog had accompanied him everywhere:

She was my buddy, everywhere I went Jazman went, I lost my best friend, She’s been in 32 different states with me, all on the road.”

Whoever shot at Jazman used a pellet gun – the .177 caliber pellet was found inside of the dog’s heart. Jazman’s owner has no idea why someone would target his dog – noting that she “loved everybody.”

A $5,000 reward is being offered by the Humane Society of Utah – anyone with information about this cruelty case is asked to make a report to the Helper Police tip line at 435-472-3719.

    POS’s! RIP Jazman and my condolences to Dennis Marshall. Even though Jazman was fenced in I wish Mr. Marshall had a watchful on him. We always think “it won’t happen to my me”, but, you just never know.

    I’m sure Jazman did love everyone, that’s why some POS with a gun was able to target her and kill her. The problem is there are monsters out there that may be don’t like dogs and take pleasure in hurting them or may be they have a problem with the owner and take it out on the dog. Someone out there knows what happened to this poor dog. I’m so sorry for Dennis Marshall losing his Jazman like this. I hope the reward brings out someone with information so he can get some justice.

    Sickening!!! Once again there is a reward for catching who did this but I have to wonder if caught would they impose anything more than a fine and probation? Such a ridiculous act of cruelty for a dog who was doing nothing more than enjoying her own back yard!!

    $5000.00 reward may be what is needed to get someone to turn this hunk of sewer slime in. I sure hope so, Jazman was not even safe in her own yard. I truly hope this bastard is turned in and should be given to Dennis Marshall to dole out the punishment, THAT WOULD BE JUSTICE FOR JAZMAN!
