Hope Solo shared the news of her dog’s death on Instagram over the weekend. She explained in the post that her dog died from blood loss after it was shot a few yards off of her property. 

Solo’s dog Conan was pictured in the post. The caption read, “we‘re brokenhearted to share that Conan passed away from blood loss last night. He fought up until the very end.‬ We’re crushed.”

“Just a dog running through the woods, trying to make his way home. We bought our 60-acres so our dogs have space to run and live their most full lives.‬ Conan was kind and loving. He wandered 30 yards off our property when he was shot.” 

“As animal lovers we are struggling to make sense of anyone using their right to own guns to shoot pets of any kind. We have had pets come onto our property and always helped them get home safe.‬”

Solo shared the dog as well as four others with her husband Jerramy Stevens. All the dogs are dobermans. The couple also share two children together Lozen Orianna Judith Stevens and Vittorio Genghis Stevens

A few days prior to the incident, Solo shared a photo of herself, her husband and their dobermans on Instagram discussing the incident. 

She said, “Our magnificent dog Conan (brown, on the far left) is in critical condition after being shot last night. It’s hard news to share, but harder to make sense of this heinous act. Jerramy and I are shocked and heartbroken, but we want to say thank you to Wilkes Veterinary Hospital and their staff for rushing Conan into emergency care, as well as their COVID-19 care practices.”

“We‘ve heard that there are developments in canine prosthetics and would love any information about getting Conan a new front leg!”
