The authorities are searching for a teen who allegedly threw a puppy out the third story window of a residence in Trenton, New Jersey. According to Friday’s NJ.com, a four-month-old American Staffordshire terrier, named “Dutchess,” suffered serious injuries after 19-year-old Anthony Matlock hurled her out the window.

The incident took place on September 21 in the midst of a domestic dispute. After being thrown from the window, Dutchess was located by firefighters in the basement of a “dilapidated” building next door.

Dutchess is recuperating from the incident at the Center for Animal Referral and Emergency Services in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. On Friday, the veterinary hospital updated Facebook followers about the puppy who is in their care:

This poor puppy is making a remarkable recovery at CARES after a man is charged with throwing her out of a third-floor window. CARES Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon Dr. David Puerto and CARES Nurse Michelle talk to the media about “Khloe” and how she is now receiving all the love and care she needs to heal and have a happy life.

The teen who is wanted by the police is facing a third-degree animal cruelty charge when he is found. WSET News reported that over two dozen puppies (English and French bulldogs) were also found in a cooler, and cages which were full of excrement.

    Dead eyed piece of scum! Another waste of space who needs to be locked up for as long as possible and never allowed around anyone on the outside he can hurt again.

    Making of a serial killer. I would like to throw the bastard out the window from the 20th floor. A real sicko storing all the dead puppies in the cooler. He’s a danger to society and must be locked up for good.

    Let’s NOT call a 19 year old POS a “teen” he is a full grown man! Anthony Matlock hurled a 4 month old puppy out a 3rd story window and needs to sit and think about what he did in jail! I wish I could find him and do the same to him!

    I don’t understand. For the past 2 years I’ve seen all this talk about making animal abuse a Felony. So why is it that everytime I read an article about some punk abusing an animal, they still only get a slap on the wrist. If this is a Felony, then the justice system needs to make the Judges enforce this type of behavior as a Felony and dish out harsher punishments…….

    Need to know extent of the injuries to this innocent. What is this couple dozen in cages and cooler? Was this a breeder? Were the puppies alive or all dead? Do you have a decent court system there? Please be aware of all the DA and judge actions. Public involvement would be great. Most of us are on the other side of the country but we care. Keep us posted and get this Sewer scum put away for a long time. Bubba will help.

    Another ghetto dweller who needs a mega dose of street justice – 19 year old PUNK is all he is – this is no man and never will be – he is just another useless waste of flesh and bone who can only pick on those that cannot defend themselves – he definitely needs to be confronted by someone who can give him exactly what he gave that little puppy – NO MERCY!

    I would it a #DLM member against a BLM member, ie: this thug anyday, anytime. Regardless of this man’s age, he deserves death, immediate, administered by a #DLM member. Courts, police refuse to do their jobs and protect the animals from heinous people like this thug. To them DLM only when they can make a buck.
