What kind of an individual would abuse a helpless puppy? Animals that depend 100% upon their owners and this is how they are treated. One really has to wonder what type of control issues have to be going on with people that would do such things to animals. Of course this is just a precursor for the escalation of abuse. It takes a really big man to abuse a helpless puppy. Maybe the punishment should have been to be put in a room with some adult dobermans.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man has pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after bringing a 7-month-old Doberman puppy with broken ribs and leg injuries to a shelter and telling the workers there that his hands hurt from hitting her.
Isaak Gowhari, 34, was sentenced Thursday to 45 days in county jail after entering his plea to the misdemeanor counts. The judge also barred Gowhari from owning an animal for three years.
Gowhari’s telephone number was unlisted and he could not immediately be reached for comment.
