An officer was called to help a blind, deaf dog. He shot him instead.

Teddy, a fluffy, 13-pound white Shih Tzu mix, stumbled around a stranger's yard. Deaf and blind, he used his nose as a guide, eventually lying down in the grass.

He was lost. But the stranger gave him water. He licked her hand and leg, spending the next 45 minutes of the sunny Sunday lolling in the expansive Sturgeon, Mo., yard.

Then a police officer pulled up. Within minutes, he had fired two shots. Teddy, a beloved 5-year-old pet, was left lifeless. His owner, 35-year-old Nick Hunter, found out through a phone call that his playful, sock-eating dog had been killed.
