A Dog Named Brisco Is Recovering, After Being Shot By Neighbor

PASCO COUNTY, Florida – Poor Brisco! Deputies say he’s recovering after being shot more than 10 times by a neighbor. “He’s just in a lot of pain and so are we. It’s a miracle, he’s even alive,” his owner says.

One Pasco County family counts their blessings. Their dog named Brisco is alive after a neighbor shot him numerous times.

This happened as their own children were playing feet away from the dog. That neighbor was arrested for animal cruelty.

Pasco deputies say he had no reason to shoot the dog. Brisco is now healing and his family is still trying to process why this happened to him.

For nine years, Brisco has been a member of Stacie Childs’ family.

“He’s loving. He sleeps with my girls every night, he plays with our potbellied pig,” she said.

He now walks with a limp. And mixed in with his gray and white coat, Brisco carries the scars of a traumatic night.

“He’s just in a lot of pain and so are we. It’s a miracle, he’s even alive,” Stacie said.

Brisco was shot more than 10 times. Pasco deputies say their neighbor, Terry Parrish pulled the trigger.

Deputies say Briscoe had wandered in Parrish’s yard. Instead of shooing him off or even calling for neighbors to come get him, the police reports says Parrish went inside, got a gun, and started shooting.

Parrish was arrested on a felony charge of animal cruelty. He was booked into the Pasco County Jail and released on a $5,000 bond.

Against all odds, Brisco survived. But it’ll take time for him and Stacie’s family to heal together.
