York County -

Police officers have just seconds to decide whether or not to use lethal force to protect themselves.And this time, that decision involved a family dog.

Alice Renee McGlone was getting a haircut when her neighbor called.

He said her dog was shot by police.

McGlone had recently been sick and her worried daughter called the York County Sheriff's Deputy to check on her.

When he got there, he noticed a missing window screen.He thought someone broke in. Scarlett, McGlone's 9 year old labrador retriever was on a chain in the backyard.

In his report, Deputy Jonathan Reed said the dog snarled at him, and though she was on a leash he was worried the dog could get to him before he could get away.

McGlone has never had a problem with her behavior.

Captain Allen Brandon stands by Deputy Reed. In a statement he said:

"He hated to have done what he did but we teach our officers that they need to protect themselves in all situations. It's regrettable what happened."

She disagrees.

"He could have backed up three feet… he could have used mace… he could have tased her," she said.

The Sergeant has called her… but she hasn't heard from Deputy Reed.

Because she couldn't imagine parting with her beloved dog for good,she buried her behind the house under her favorite honey suckle tree.

She says there will always be a hole in her heart and an erie quiet in her home.
