A dog, who was discovered on August 7 inside of a hospital chapel in Newport Beach, California, had to be euthanized because her condition was so poor. According to Wednesday’s KTLA News, the 11-year-old Boston terrier, named “Pasha,” had a body which was covered in approximately 300 painful tumors.

The Newport Beach Animal Control determined who the dog belonged to when her owner, 52-year-old Mary Sodaro, phoned in looking for her dog. According to the OC Register, Sodaro refused veterinary care for her senior dog and tried to remove a large tumor on the dog’s paw with a rubber band which became embedded in Pasha’s body.

Orange County Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Malone commented on the extreme neglect:

The fact that the tumor was rubber banded and continued to grow is disturbing. The tumor had grown to such a size it affected Pasha’s ability to breathe. We have never seen neglect like this.”

Sodaro was arrested over the weekend and she is facing a felony animal cruelty charge, in addition to misdemeanor charges for failure to care for animals and animals at large.

    This thing should be put in jail immediately in solitary for the rest of her life. How do you let a dog live like this and still want your dog back? Every post here is exactly correct and crimes like this must have better punishments in memory of these dogs that died because of these ugly, horrible people.

    The pain and suffering endured by Pasha litarlly takes my breath away! If the court system doesn’t SEVERLY punish this cruel low life abuser the judge involved needs removed immediately! I’m disturbed by the fact that NOBODY who knows the vile abuser never turned her in to authorities! Every single person who was aware of Pasha and did nothing to help her are just as vile and guilty as Pasha’s owner! OMG! This makes my stomach turn!
