"She was a great dog. She did everything with me. This dog went everywhere," said the 21-year-old, who was 12 when his parents gave him a 9-week-old German shepherd mix puppy.
"Everyone knew she was a good dog, and they're all sad about it," said Curto.
Curto and Mahoney approached the railroad tracks, and moments later found the dog on the ground, less than 20 feet from their shop.
Curto and his mother tried to resuscitate her, but were unsuccessful.
"My mom picked her up and her stomach just felt like there was nothing there," Curto said.
Jones said police have had no reports of problems with Jaycee before and learned from other nearby business owners that she was a friendly dog.
The family isn't sure why someone would shoot Jaycee, but they've launched a Facebook page called "Justice for Jaycee" to help find the person responsible.
He praised Plaistow police for their response to the shooting.
"They came out here with four cruisers," he said. "They were walking up and down the tracks. They showed nothing but compassion and consideration."
