An influencer has claimed her husband ‘shot and killed her dog instead of taking it to the vet after it was injured in a hit and run incident’.
Brittany Dawn, who is a YouTuber, released a video on her channel insisting he did it so that the animal ‘wouldn’t suffer’.
She explained that the incident happened while she was out on a shopping trip. When she returned, she tragically discovered her pet had been hit by a car.
She said: “I thought I saw Brodie [the dog]. I realised he wasn’t moving, and he wasn’t standing.
“I was a vet tech for five years. I realised there was no saving him, he was still breathing.”
Dawn’s husband, Jordan, then brought her into the house, so she wouldn’t have to witness what was coming next.
She continued: “All I heard was this truck revving its engine so loud, and I could hear it from the bedroom.
“I knew that’s when the gunshot went off. Jordan had to do that for Brodie so he wouldn’t suffer.”
All reactions and comments have been disabled on the YouTuber’s post, but she also shared a separate one to Instagram about her beloved pet.
She wrote: “My heart feels like it’s in a million pieces right now. I would never wish this feeling on anyone.
“Brodie, you were my best little buddy. The dog that picked up on when I was about to have a panic attack, and would gently bring me back down.”
Fans were quick to send well wishes in the comments, with one writing: “My heart is breaking for y’all! Pets are literal family. Praying for your family during this difficult time.”
“I can feel your pain through this post, I am so sorry, I cannot imagine what you are going through and how much your heart hurts right now! Sending love and prayers!” said another.
