DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - Rick Ewing stares at a picture of Shon. Shon is a retired police dog from Slovakia. He was very protective of the Ewings.
"He was my family member. That was my best friend and my son's best friend," says Ewing as his voice cracks.
Shon died the same way "hundreds, if not thousands" of animals are dying every year in Texas according to Animal Rights Attorney Don Feare.
