Seeking comfort from mall shooting with floppy ears, wagging tails
A week after the fatal shootings at the Mall in Columbia where Brianna Benlolo, Tyler Johnson and shooter Darion Aguilar lost their lives, Fidos for Freedom in Laurel opened its doors for the first time in direct response to a public tragedy.
