Barry Grove, from Karthus, allegedly shot his dog, Anne, back in April.
His neighbors heard a gunshot and saw the dog in distress just outside her house. Troopers were forced to euthanize the dog because of the severity of the gunshot wounds.
Grove will now face a jury trial. The jury will be selected December 2nd, with a January or February trial date.
