Dog sitter beat dog, sprayed it with water and locked it in freezer

There has to be a special kind of hell reserved for a suspected animal abuser in West Monroe, Louisiana who had been a dog sitter for a friend and “mutilated” it. The accused is said to have injured the dog, sprayed it with hot water and then locked it the freezer.

According to MyArklamiss.com, Samuel Smith, 24, was arrested Thursday evening by the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Department who stated the owner of the Yorkshire terrier had left her tiny pup in the care of Smith at her apartment on December 13. The dog’s owner said she received a call from Smith that morning claiming the dog had left the apartment, and when the dog returned, there were injuries to the dog’s face, eyes and head as well as some of the dog’s fur missing.

The dog was rushed to an emergency veterinary clinic, and at this time it is not known if the damage to the dog’s eyes will be permanent.

When questioned by authorities the next day, Smith admitted to spraying the dog with  hot water in the bathroom and then putting the dog in the freezer for about 30 seconds. Remnants of the dog’s coat were discovered in the freezer section of the refrigerator at the owner’s apartment. Smith told police he didn’t like the pet, but had not meant to “mutilate” it and had just been “messing with the dog.”

Smith has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty and bond has been set at $5,000.

    Why? Why did he do this? Owner must have known this creep and the creep must have met the pup before the owner had him watch the pup = JUST ANOTHER SICKO!! Hope the pup recovers from the trauma as well as the injuries, very sweet looking!!

    What he did to this dog should be done to him 10 times over. Then throw his sorry ass in jail and let the inmates handle him. These scums should be all on a desert island and kill each other.

    So, let me just “mess with” this POS. By the time I’m finished with him, he’ll wish his sorry ass had never been born. I hope the pup can make a complete recovery and hopefully his owner will no longer have Smith for a “friend.”

    People need to stop being cheap and if they don’t have someone they know and trust (like family!) to keep their pet, spend $15 or $20 a night to keep the poor dear at the vet for boarding. And this idiot deserves to be shot, the world doesn’t need people like this.

    O Samuel Smith I TRULY hope your punk white ass is still sitting in jail – may every predatory inmate get their chance to make YOU a victim in every way possible – to treat a tiny innocent animal so cruelly only proves you are nothing more than maggot puke and may the remainder of your pathetic life be short – you deserve NO life.

    This psychopath needs to be prosecuted to the very fullest extent of the law, prescribed mandatory mental treatment and prohibited from EVER being near an animal again — not to pet sit or own one himself. The world would be better off if scum like him were never even born in the first place.
