The hero German shepherd who saved the lives of earthquake victims in Italy has been poisoned to death in the front yard of his own home. The terrible crime happened on Saturday.

According to the Guardian, Fabiano Ettore found his dog Kaos in the garden of his home. On Fabiano’s Facebook page, he tried to describe his emotional pain- stating his dog’s death left an “unbridgeable void.”

“I have no words. I can’t understand such a horrible act. He was alive at least until two o’clock in the morning, as I heard him bark,” he stated.

Both Kaos and Fabiano earned hero status when the three-year-old dog arrived in Armatice after a 6.2 magnitude earthquake in August 2016 caused mass destruction. More than 230 people lost their lives, but Kaos and his owner worked with rescuers for weeks saving victims of the disaster.

The Italian police are investigating the dog’s death. Animal advocates are calling for more stringent animal protection laws and want harsher punishments for anyone found guilty of animal cruelty.

In a tribute to his brave dog, Fabiano posted the following emotional tribute to Kaos. It has been shared more than 116,000 times:

“Keep up your work up there, keep looking for the missing and saving lives.”

    If dogs can become angels in heaven, Kaos will be at the top of the list! In any event, he will certainly always be watching over you, Fabiano!

    Sad to hear of the loss of this man’s rescue dog and his partner. I will not speculate as to where Kaos was when he barked at 2 am nor is there anything to say that his owner checked on him. Whatever happened, it is a great loss for Fabiano and his community. Rest in peace Kaos. Hope there is justice for your untimely death. Some people are extremely cruel and heartless.

    Why was Kaos outside at 2 in the morning? He probably barked at whoever poisoned him. This is no way to treat a valuable member of your family Fabiano Ettore. All the laws in the world won’t save you dog if you don’t keep them safe! Rest in peace hero Kaos, I hope there is some justice in this for you.

    What kind of heartless STUPID prick kills a rescue dog??? Tell you what you EVIL FUCKER .. the next time there’s an earthquake in your area. I hope to fuck you get buried under tons of rubble and never get found. Because you killed a rescue dog who’d be able to find your worthless ass.


    I pray that karma comes to the bastard who poisoned this brave dog. like maybe someone might poison him!
