A North Texas family say someone shot and killed their 15-year-old daughter's loyal service dog.

Four years ago, the community of Quinlan near Dallas rallied behind a young girl with diabetes. They raised $10,000 to get her a service dog trained to detect low blood sugar.

Hannah's family says Journey saved their daughter's life more than once.

On Sunday, someone shot the dog right outside the family's rural home.

"He laid his head on my lap. I just went over there and kissed him on the head and told him everything was going to be OK," Hannah said.

"He took Hannah's little hero for no reason," said Hannah's mother Tina Westmoreland.

Journey died despite efforts by a vet clinic to save him. The family has no idea who did it or why.
