Hope Solo shared tragic news with fans after revealing that her beloved dog, Conan, died after being shot near her home. On Friday, Solo thanked the veterinary hospital where Conan was initially treated following the tragic incident.

"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."

Was Initially Going to Survive

Even though Conan had been shot, Solo and husband Jerramy Stevens seemed confident the dog would survive, even though he had been permanently disfigured. Solo had posted about a dog prosthetic as they planned for Conan's recovery:

"We‘ve heard that there are developments in canine prosthetics and would love any information about getting Conan a new front leg!" she wrote on Instagram.

However, things took a turn for the worse when Solo took back to social media to announce that Conan had passed away.

Too Much Blood Loss

He fought hard, but Solo revealed Conan passed away from blood loss. In an emotional statement, she described some of the details that led up to the shooting.

"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.‬"

It's unclear if any legal action will be taken after Conan's death.
