CONCORD, Calif. (KGO) -- A Concord man is livid because a police officer shot his elderly dog. The police say it was justified, but the dog owner tells ABC7 News that it was completely unnecessary.
"This bottom part is where a fragment of the bullet came out," said Dave Billing, a roommate.
The Concord police officer shot Kirby, a 13-year-old cocker spaniel mix, with his 40 caliber pistol.
"He yelped and just stopped moving for a second. I really thought he was dead," said Zach Grimm, Kirby's owner.
There's a bullet fragment lodged near Kirby's spine and his recovery is still questionable. Concord police would not speak on camera, but they say officers responded to a burglary call last week. One of them went into the backyard of this home where Grimm lives with his two roommates.
