Country singer Alison Lewis dotes on her dog Millie - the 6-year-old dog sometimes even joins her mom onstage for performances. Naturally, Lewis was horrified last weekend when a Detroit police officer pulled out a gun and shot Millie, allegedly for "galloping" towards the officers.
Lewis, who lives in the Detroit area, was at a field with some friends on Sunday, letting Millie and a few other dogs play off-leash, the Detroit Free Press reports. When the police drove up, Millie ran towards the officers.
As Lewis tried to assure the police that Millie was harmless, an officer drew his gun and shot the dog in the face - the bullet tore through her lip and lodged in her jaw.
