Like the dog you are!

Why do tv tough guys so often say, "I'm going to hunt you down and kill you like a dog"? This always makes me wonder, "Does this guy kill a lot of dogs? And does he kill them in some particularly notable way, which is the way he's going to kill this particular enemy as well?" which then leads me to, "Or does this guy mean, 'kill you like a dog would kill you'? So is he saying he's going to kill the guy with his teeth and claws? Maybe with some growling and barking?"

I hate sayings that make no sense.
