Reportedly, the Sheppard family dog used to bark loud and long at the sight or sound of strangers. However, he was strangely silent the morning of the murder, and now neither barks nor growls at reporters calling at the home. Ko-ko, part Irish Setter and Doberman Pinscher, apparently limped all the next day from an unexplained injury to his hip.
