In White House, Tennessee, the owner of the well-known Schnauzer named Milo continues to grieve over the dog’s untimely death. Known as the unofficial mascot of his Joe Burris’ business, Value Cargo Vans, the friendly dog carried the title of “Tennessee Biker Dog” because he loved riding on the back of motorcycles.
Authorities are now investigating the possible case of animal cruelty. According to WsmvNews, as a driver had been delivering some vans to Burris’ business on Friday, Milo wandered outside. Later in the day a White House police officer called Burris telling him that his dog had been found dead. Burris believes the delivery truck driver killed his beloved pal by breaking the dog’s neck. The driver, however has a different version and allegedly stated the dog had charged him and after he kicked it a few times to get away, the dog landed in front a truck and was run over.
The driver has since then denied he ever kicked the dog and stated Milo ran onto the street on his own and was struck by a truck.
“From looking at my dog’s body, there were no marks, no blood and no scars. I’m confident he didn’t get hit by a truck,” stated Burris. “I just want justice for him. I would give my business to have Milo back today. It was like losing a child because I spent every day with him,” Burris said. “Every day and night, he worked here with me, he came to work with me.”
A necropsy to determine the dog’s exact cause of death was scheduled to be done on Wednesday. Rest in peace Milo.
