A parole board made a decision on Wednesday morning regarding Caitlyn’s abuser, 43-year-old William Dodson. According to the Post and Courier, Dodson, the man convicted of felony animal cruelty for taping Caitlyn’s muzzle closed, has been denied parole.
The seven-member board voted unanimously to keep the animal abuser locked up for the remainder of his sentence, a decision which surely has warmed the hearts of animal lovers and fans of Caitlyn, the dog who has come to be known as “America’s Dog.”
Caitlyn was discovered wandering in North Charleston with her muzzle tightly bound in tape back in 2015. The tape injured Caitlyn’s jaw and tongue and she had to undergo surgical procedures to repair the damage.
Caitlyn’s abuser was sentenced for his crime in March 2017 – much to the delight of Caitlyn’s fans, the judge gave Dodson the maximum sentence allowable.
With the help of the Charleston Animal Society, Caitlyn was able to recuperate from her injuries.
