WEAKLY COUNTY Tenn.- A Dresden woman is concerned for her family after they said a pizza delivery man pulled a gun on their family dog Sunday night.

Homeowners say their boxer, Chipper, is very friendly and would never hurt anyone. The family said the delivery man for Pizza USA puled a handgun on the dog, after it came on their porch and barked at him.

"I'm just a little concerned about someone that would pull a weapon so quickly, " said homeowner Tracy Pike.

The driver has a much different story. He tells WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News that Chipper came at him aggressively and growling. Officials with Pizza USA said they believe the driver was acting within his rights to protect himself.

The family said a gun should have never been involved, "We have enough going on and kids losing their life for this to happen in a small town, it's hard."

Pizza USA did call and apologize to the family for the incident.
