When I initially read the title of your thread, my impulse answer was a empathetic "Yes"
But then I thought about my best friends dog, and the bond that I have with it. She has a standard poodle (never thought I would like poodles but
that is a different story), That dog is one of the most loving, loyal and, well mannered dogs I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
Just the thought of hurting that dog brought a real tear to my eye. I could never look that dog in eye and take its life, or any other dog, now
that I have witnessed the depth and profound effect a "mere" pet can have on a person.
Now if it had died by natural means then yes, but only out of extreme desperation.
