CAROLINA — The owner of a house in an upscale Charlotte neighborhood is mourning the loss of his dog, a male Labrador Retriever mix who went missing Friday night.
A family friend said the dog was found dead at the end of the street just before midnight, a few feet from where he had been standing, on the side of the house where his owner has lived for about two years.
The owner said the owner told him he was in shock over the dog’s death.
He said his neighbor was trying to find the dog and it had wandered into a vacant lot.
The neighbor told The Associated Press that his neighbor, who is from the Dominican Republic, was trying desperately to find his dog when he stumbled upon the body.
He says the dog had been killed by someone who broke into the house, and he was the only one who had noticed anything unusual about it.
