Photo Gallery: The 360° Canine Crew

Editor's Note: This week, the Vermont State Supreme Court began hearing a case that started in July 2003, when Denis and Sarah Scheele, who were visiting relatives, let their mixed-breed dog wander into a neighbor's yard and he fatally shot it. The court is now reviewing the case.

The Scheeles filed a civil suit against Dustin, arguing that Shadow was more than a piece of property and that they could not be compensated just with reimbursement of what they paid to adopt him from an animal shelter, the veterinary bill that resulted from the shooting and the cost of his cremation.

Jeffrey Toobin and Lisa Bloom will be on to discuss the case tonight at 10 p.m. ET.

When we heard about this story, many of us here at 360° started thinking about our own dogs. Check out this gallery of a few of our canine companions.

    Leash laws exist for a reason. The dog's irresponsible owners were negligent; they failed in their responsibility.

    animals are more than property - they are family. they are are a part of you, they understand and take care of you and entertain. they are family.

    Thanks for this story and sharing your fine looking canines with your viewers. We have two black labs and realize how dogs can take over one's heart and home. It can be devastating to loose them prematurely, and it is not easy when they are old, either. We appreciate you good people. Happy holidays to you all.

    Police dogs are considered officers? I'm not sure but the same applies with Police horses? So why not a family dog part of the family?

    As a veterinarian and pet owner, I do believe that pets are more than just property. On the other hand, if people are allowed to start suing for anguish, etc. then veterinarians are going to have to buy expensive malpractice insurance and in turn charge a lot more for their services. Is this really what people want?

    Thanks for sharing these awesome photos...love the show and it's no surprise that there are so many amazing dog parents making it happen. Thanks also for all you do to bring relevant dog-related stories to the forefront.

    What great dogs!! All so pretty and they pose so nice – my dog when I was growing up was named Jake so I liked him; Santa Sammy is so cool; and Franklin – I love German Shepherds since our dogs tended to be German Shepherds; Franklin has the classic coloring for a German Shepherd and is just so beautiful.

    I just have one question – in all these pictures of these great dogs I don't see Anderson's dog Molly – was she camera shy this year??

    How could anyone shoot a dog just for wandering into their yard? Way too many sickies in this world.

    Good for them. I'm happy that pets could be considered more than property in the eyes of court.

    I just loved the picture of Randi Kaye's dog because he looks like my dog Jack (a Jack Russell). However they are all adorable.
