Their video has sent shockwaves through the internet. Here's the full story...

Now, this story has left many people horrified. 

Especially since dogs are one of the most beloved pets.

These adorable creatures are basically the best things on earth. If you're ever feeling down in the dumps, a dog is guaranteed to make you feel better.

They are truly man's best pals.

Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the entire sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.

Once you become a dog-parent, there's no going back...

It’s hard to imagine a life without having a pooch to come home to.

In an age where the internet is so divided, there's one thing we can all agree on...

How utterly amazing (and adorable) our 4-legged friends are.

But sadly, not all dogs have the life they deserve...

And that brings us to todays tragic story...

Family vloggers, Nicki and Dan Phillippi, revealed in a YouTube video they have euthanized their 9-year-old bull terrier, Bowser.

And it's caused outrage online...

In the YouTube video posted on Monday, Nikki and Dan explained that Bowser reacted to their son Logan taking food from him.

However, they said the injury "wasn't bad" and their son has a "little mark."

Noting that Bowser had injured other dogs previously, Dan said:

"In the moment, I'm thinking I grew up with the movie Old Yeller and I wanted to pick Bowser up by the back of the neck and take him to the backyard and put him down right there."

They then move on to claim that the Humane Society told them rehoming Bowser would be impossible...

So they decided to use a euthanasia service to him put him down.

Following the video, Nikki posted a selection of pictures to Instagram with Bowser before his death, which included photos with their child.

She has since made her Instagram profile private.
