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.
