    maybe the Roman Godess Diana, was admired by Acteon who was out hunting with his dogs and spied on Diana whilst she was bathing, Diana turned him into a stag and he was killed by his hounds,  Best as I can remember the tale, look up Diana and Acteon.

    Are you thinking of "The Yearling" by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings? I don't remember a dog, but it was about a hunter whose son took in a baby deer as his pet...

    It was also adapted into a film in the 1940's.

    I found a story for you, Artemis and Actaeon, I have never read the book, or story as it seems, but here is a short summary, I hope you'll enjoy the book if it your desire to do so.

    The Short Story

    It all starts as Actaeon is hunting deer with a group of friends and a large pack of dogs. Everyone's hot and sweaty from hunting all morning, so they decide to just take it easy for the rest of the day. Searching for some shade, Actaeon wanders deep into the woods and stumbles onto a secret grove. And wouldn't you know it—he sees the goddess Artemis, naked as a baby mole rat.

    Artemis is furious when she sees Actaeon peeping on her lady parts, and she transforms him into a deer by splashing water at him. Cool trick. As he runs away, Actaeon encounters his hunting dogs, who tear their former master apart with their vicious fangs.

    Its not a happy ending for Artemis....

    I wrote a short story called Ice In The Swamp about a hunter and a deer, but there was no dog in the story. Perhaps I should refine it and post it as a Hub.
