BROWN CITY, MI (WNEM) -

A family’s dogs wandered off and one came back with bullet holes.

"They're not just dogs, they're family," Mike Vislosky said.

Their dog Hatchi wandered off and came back riddled with bullet holes. Their other dog Ranger, is still missing.

"I think it's hard on everyone because you don't know where they are and in the back of your mind you're wondering are they hurt? Are they suffering? Has someone been mean to them," Becky Vislosky said.

The family said they're not sure who did this, or why.

In Michigan, the law said it's legal to shoot a dog perceived to be hurting people or livestock. The Visloskys said their dogs have never shown signs of doing that and they don't believe they would have.

"They've not caused any problems. They’re great with kids. We have two children,” Becky Vislosky said. “They have multiple friends over all the time. They've never been aggressive towards any other animals."

While Hatchi recovers, there is still no trace of Ranger.

"To me it's not really who did it, I would just like my dog back," Becky Vislosky said.

On March 10, the Visloskys donated $2,000 to the Sanilac County Humane Society. They created a GoFundMe page to cover Hatchi's expenses, and that generosity generated $3,100. 

The family offered up a $2,000 reward for any information about the devastating incident.

"We still never found out who did it, but it brought a lot of awareness to hopefully stop this from happening to anybody else," Mike Vislosky said.

Anyone with information on Ranger can contact the Visloskys at 810-346-3800.
