"I was like, 'Easy, she doesn't bite or anything like that.' All the sudden I heard a pop. It was like a 9 millimeter sound. I was amazed," Cook said.

The shooter missed the dog and fled the area.

Two weeks ago a man shot and killed a dog in a park in Colorado Springs. That dog was also off its leash. Police are trying to see if the two shootings are linked.
