Two dogs were shot and killed right in front of the man who they were trying to protect. The sad incident took place last week in Indianapolis, Indiana. As reported by The Indy Channel, Thomas Brookshire opened his door to a man wearing a mask, hoodie and skull cap last Wednesday – the man was armed and demanded money.

Brookshire told the news agency what happened:

“Pulled a gun in my face and said, ‘give me everything you’ve got.’ And I’m thinking, you know I ain’t got nothing.”

The dogs

With the door open, Brookshire’s dogs, Sir and Precious, ran towards the man with the gun – the masked gunman began firing and both dogs died right in front of their owner. The devastated man stated, “All he took is my heart, my soul, he didn’t take my life though.”

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to Crimestoppers.

    Pray they find the vile monster who did this and shoot him right between the eyes. Save our tax dollars and just do away with this creature. I am sure someone can identify him and when he is caught, please let us know. RIP Sir and Precious, you did the ultimate sacrifice for your dad.

    How heartbroken this poor man must be. Anyone broke into my house and demanded money would be in for a rude awakening as I don’t have money lying around either. But I’m sure he would have given up everything to have his two precious dogs back. I hope they find the monster that did this, they need to be in jail.

    Your doggie heroes are in heaven with the angels watching over you. The sick evil murderer will one day permanently reside in a “very special” place in HELL!
