Womack says it would be several more days before police even told her the rescued lab-pit bull mix, who escaped from her backyard earlier that day, was dead.
"He was a playful and loving puppy who wanted to do nothing but play and cuddle. He played with our son and watched over him. They were like brothers, which was the reason we got him," wrote Womack on Facebook. "He was more than a pet, he was family. Now dead because of chief Spencer."
