PUPPY LOVE: National Police officers are caring for a small dog whose owner has been arrested for alleged abuse of the animal.
NATIONAL POLICE have arrested a 29-year-old accused of mistreating his dog in Alicante.
The man is alleged to have kicked his dog, breaking several bones and causing its lungs to become water logged. The vet said the injuries were consistent with being kicked.
Police were called to the home of the pet owner by neighbours concerned about its welfare after hearing howls from the animal. Police responded and found the man picking up bits of glass from a broken window. Seeing the dog shaking in the corner, the owner said the dog had accidentally crashed into the window and broke the glass.
Officers removed the animal and took it to a vet where they proceeded to cover veterinary costs themselves, with one officer now personally caring for the pet at home. Animal charity Asoka has now stepped in to help raise more money.
