A four thousand dollar reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspect responsible for the shooting death of Dixie, the border collie. Dixie was shot three times by a pellet gun while in her backyard in Star, Idaho. The puppy was rushed to the hospital, but it was too late to save her life. So far, no suspects have been arrested in the case.
Reward signs are planted all around her neighborhood in Star. Organizers ask that anyone with information call the non-emergency number for the Ada County Sheriff’s Office at 208-377-6790.
The Idaho Humane Society issued the following statement at the time of Dixie’s death. “We are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of individuals responsible for this cruel behavior. We remain committed to animals and are available to assist police authorities investigating this case, if needed.”
