4 year old Winter, a pit bull, was shot late Monday night by an officer. One bullet went through her leg and out the other side the other is still inside her body.

"They're not sure if the bullet went through her abdomen, so they're gonna do more x-rays to see everything," said Brittany Chambers.

Brittany Chambers and her husband Kevin say officers showed up at their house Monday just before midnight.

Police wanted to tell them that they found their broken down car and wanted to make sure it wasn't stolen from them.

Winter was barking from within her gated yard, but when the officer opened the gate. He says the dog bit at his leg, so he shot her.

"I would feel better if the officer who shot my dog would just come and see what kind of dog my dog is. I think he would feel really bad; he would probably think twice about shooting another dog maybe give dogs the benefit of the doubt," said Kevin Chambers.

The Chambers say their dog did what she's supposed to do, alert them that someone is at their gate .

They also say the officer shouldn't have opened the gate because this wasn't an emergency situation and their screen door was open. "I think they could have just yelled over the gate and got our attention we def would've came and let them in," said Kevin.

Now Winter is recovering on pain meds at a Phoenix Animal Hospital.

"It'll take a while for the wounds to heal, but she'll be ok," said Brittany.

The vet will have to perform surgery to remove the bullet so Winter probably won't return home until next week.

The Chambers will have to pay for all the vet bills and then file for reimbursement with the police department.
