"The gun shots were right up in there," Pam Daughenbaugh says, pointing to a wooded area about 300 yards away.
She says when she heard the gun go off she knew they were being shot at.
"It was like, bang, bang, bang," she recounts.
By the second shot she says she saw the family's husky mix, Lilly, frantically running full speed down the hill back to the house.
"She kept looking back as if to say Devin should be coming. But he never came."
Devin was a year-and-a half old pit-bull boxer mix Pam's daughter, Jaime Daughenbaugh, rescued as a pup and loved like child.
"When I told her last night the first thing she said was somebody killed my baby."
The dog was shot twice, once in the chest and another from behind.
He was found next to a tree, buried beneath a pile of leaves and sticks not far from the family's Tyrone area home in Blair County.
Family friend and animal advocate, Stephanie Barnett, found the dog Thursday.
"When we first saw him we knew obviously somebody had put him there purposely to hide him," she says.
Barnett organized a group of volunteers to go out searching for Devin after he went missing Monday, running off into neighboring woods while outside playing with Lilly.
Jaime Daughenbaugh is devastated, she says Devin was playful and sweet and everyone in the neighborhood knew him.
She says she doesn't understand how or why somebody could do something like this.
The family's property is large enough, Pam Daughenbaugh says, that their dogs have always been able to run outside and return home when called.
While the dogs have never ran away before, she says, she just can't risk something like this happening again and are installing a fence as soon as possible.
