A 32-year-old man  from Anoka County, Minnesota has been charged with animal abuse. According to KstpNews, Eric David Elwell is alleged to have hosed the dog in cold water and then threw the dog outside in the cold for 20 minutes as a punishment for urinating in the house.

According to the criminal  complaint, the owner of the home who lived in Florida from December 2015 to March 2016, had allowed Elwell to live in her home in the basement in exchange for taking care of the house and dogs. During that time, Elwell sold more than $2,000 of the woman’s belongings. A witness states seeing Elwell abuse the family Dachshund named Trick; claiming Elwell had been high on meth when he hit the dog over the head several times, doused the pet in cold water and threw the dog outside in the cold weather.

Authorities were able to recover $600 worth of the homeowner’s belongings. A warrant for Elwell’s arrest was issued on October 21. He faces charges of theft, third-degree criminal damage to property and animal cruelty.

  1. Lowlife SOB. The homeowner was doing this jerk a favor by giving him a free place to live and he “repays” her by selling her stuff and abusing her dog. What a POS.

    What the fuck is up with these POS these is so much animal abuse, we the people who love animals need to get together and start eliminate these POS …

  3. I have lost faith in alot of human beings. How do people hurt their pets. What is wrong with them. They need to take all people who have abused an animal and for the same thing to them that they did to the animal. Then throw them in jail and throw away the key

  4. JUST GOES to show YOU that you REALLY can’t trust and depend on someone giving your pets quality care … This DRUG ADDICT needs some GOOD ole time in the PEN… which of course won’t happen… Lucky the little Dachshund Tick survived his ordeal….but this should not have happened and I hope the Judge that hears this case Loves “LONGDOG”S “!!!!
