On Thursday, the Washington Animal Rescue League made an announcement about the sentencing of a man who was convicted for lighting a puppy on fire in 2014. The abuser, Brian Davis, has been sentenced to seven months in jail for a felony animal cruelty charge resulting from burning the Yorkshire terrier puppy named “Andy.”

Andy, who was nine-months-old at the time of the September 2014 incident, was discovered with severe injuries on his abdomen, chest, ears, legs, and tail. The wounds ultimately proved to be fatal – the pup died despite receiving veterinary treatment. Washington Humane Society Humane Law Enforcement (HLE) Officer Nick Lippincott said at the time, ” This is one of the most severely injured animals I have witnessed in my career, due to blatant cruelty.”

Following Davis’ sentencing, HLE Officer Dan D’Eramo, who worked on the case, said, “The charges were initially ‘destruction of property’ and ‘arson’ but the U.S. Attorney’s Office was able to amend them to felony cruelty to animals midway through the case. Without the relationship we have with MPD, Davis probably wouldn’t have served any time.”

Davis’ motive for lighting Andy on fire remain unknown.

    I hope somebody in this prison takes care of your ass in jail. What a horrific way to die. You should suffer the same as this defenseless dog did.

    It would be good to learn that while behind bars an animal lover sets this monster on fire. Can only hope.

    So glad that this POS will pay for what he did to this poor animal. But, I am upset that the original charge was classed as “destruction of property”. This is the problem in our legal system. As long as they class these acts as destruction of property, nothing will change. Pets are not property, they are family member. He should have been charged with murder. RIP sweet little soul.

    He “Murdered” this pup, he needs to spend more than 7 months in jail for this. When is the judicial system going to realize these dogs are not just “property” they are members of families, the original charge was ridiculous!

    I hope someone in jail put his fucking ass on fire. I hope he goes to pure hell for the time in jail. 7 months is a joke. He killed and burned a little dog. Judge must have been drunk when he gave out this sentence.
