I want to say the dog is killed some year back.
You can't say that. You need to use the past tense if something happened some years back.
can you please correct the sentense
It seems like you don't understand.
Sometimes (almost always) we need a little bit more context to help you with your problem.
The dog is killed and the dog was killed mean the same thing, but in they happened at the different time. We use "is" when we're talking about present events and "was" about past events. That's why we need to see the whole context and understand from the context what the tense we should use.
Oh my Gosh, this dog is killed, call the police. (we'd do this in Russia + I didn't find any examples )
Jimmy Red, whose dog was killed several years ago, was going crazy. Poor guy.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
