Liberty family seeks justice after ‘targeted attack’ of their dog in its own back yard – WYFF4 Greenville

A family from Liberty is seeking justice after they say their dog was intentionally shot in his own back yard. Owners found a foot-long arrow lodged in three-year-old Douui's side after letting him out to use the bathroom on the night of Dec. 19. The pit bull was inside his fenced-in back yard and wearing a light on his collar, according to the Moore family. They believe that despite the dog's lovable demeanor, Douui was targeted simply because of his breed. "(He was shot) just because (of) the look of him," Jessica Moore said. "He's broad. He's big. He's a pit bull, (It) doesn't mean you should judge him by that and send something like this through him," she said, holding up the arrow. The vet bill was more than $2,000 but paid for by a family friend. Douui's owner, Matthew Moore, said had it not been for his friend's generosity, Douui would not be here."I'm not the type of person that usually gets this emotional," Matthew said. "At my mom and pops funeral, I didn't get this emotional, and you know ... it's just been devastating."The family hopes that by sharing this story they can help track down whoever is responsible and bring justice to the pain their dog is going through. They also hope to de-stigmatize the pit bull breed and raise more awareness on this gruesome attack against a helpless animal.
