Jeff McLawhorn says his one-year-old chocolate Labrador "Choco" went missing last Tuesday. McLawhorn says he found the dog in the marshy area behind his house with a gunshot wound on Saturday.
An investigation is being conducted by the Greene County Animal Control, officials suspect a nearby deer hunter could be responsible.
McLawhorn says the death of Choco is like losing a family member.
McLawhorn does own two other Labradors, Duke and Luke, but he says he hopes justice will be done for Choco.
