Man charged with animal cruelty for getting his dog drunk!

By Bri Luginbill More Blogs by This Author

Hello and welcome to The Kibble, your weekly news report on what’s happening in the dog world! This week we have some upsetting news that will turn dog lover’s heads everywhere. A man has been charged with animal cruelty for getting his dog drunk!

And when I say drunk, it's 100% true.

His dog was tested and had a blood alcohol content of .348%! .4% is known as fatal to humans, so I can't even imagine how bad .35 is for a dog. And, what makes it worse is the dog was a little 20-pound Pomeranian.  

:( He was already so small.

This man was seen giving the dog vodka out of a to-go cup outside of a bar. A couple bystanders saw this incident and called the police. By the time officers arrived, the dog was found stumbling around when officers arrived at the scene of the bar.

They took the dog from him immediately and got him to a veterinarian. The vet he saw had 20 years of experience and said he had NEVER seen anything like this before. Dogs came into his office before for accidentally ingesting alcohol...but not for intentionally being given alcohol.

The little pomi had to stay in the animal hospital for a couple of days for recovery, but survived! Now he is at the humane society, where workers are taking care of him diligently. He deserves some extra special treatment in my opinion!

What do you think about this? What should happen to the owner?

  • I don't think that is cruel so much as bizarre...taking the dog away from him seems like the logical punishment
