This post got a lot of attention, and prompted a strong and swift reaction from people in the local community. The Troup Police Department and Smith County Animal Control were able to get to the house in time and the owners surrendered the dog.

Reporters at KYTX went to the house of Cinnamon's previous owner and tried to get some answers. A man off camera said, "I know how the media works. You people are the f-----g devil."

“It’s devastating. I work with these dogs every day," Nanette Moss of Smith County Animal Control told KYTX. "They are my life and when she walked through my door it just broke my heart. She's a sweet dog and how can somebody shoot a sweet dog?"

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Smith County Animal Control and Nicholas Pet Haven for comment.
