Bullet never left Moore’s side. He was there when she took her last breath.

“That’s what he is trained to do,” Dow said. “He’s trained to stay right next to her no matter what.”

Moore loved the dog and trained him herself, Dow said. That’s why he feared he’d lost not only Moore, but the companion she depended on.

“You name it — he did everything with her,” Dow said.

The day after Moore was killed, Dow says, the police came to his front door. He looked down to see Bullet wagging his tail.

“I was ecstatic,” Dow said.
