BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA (WOFL FOX 35) – Cocoa Police are investigating after a dog was shot and wounded the backyard of a home. The dog is the companion of Jonathan Hawkins, 8, who has special needs.

The 2-year-old Chow Shepard named Riley is recovering in little blue cast around his leg. The shooting happened on Saturday night while the dog was in the fenced in back yard of the family’s Cocoa home.

“We heard the gunshot and it sounded really close, and then we heard the second gunshot and Riley hollered and we just knew somebody had shot her,” said Loretta Hawkins, the owner of the dog.

A Go Fund Me page was started to help pay for the dog’s surgery.  https://www.gofundme.com/rgu9mkb4
