Defendant in Puppy Doe trial claims dog was abused by someone else

As the Puppy Doe trial in Dedham, Massachusetts continued on Thursday, the defendant Radoslaw Czerkawski’s defense attorney, maintained his client’s innocence against torturing the two-year-old pup in his Quincy home during the summer of 2013. Czerkawski contends the dog ran away shortly after he purchased her off of Craigslist, and it was someone else who tortured and abused the dog.

According to the Patriot Leader, Prosecutor Gregory Connors addressed the court in his opening statement outlining the case against Czerkawski, who at the time had been caring for a 95-year-old woman. It was on June 8, when Czerkawski bought the pit bull puppy named Kiya. On August 31, the puppy was found in a nearby park with egregious injuries – so severe the puppy cried in excruciating pain even when veterinarians tried to take radiograms to determine the dog’s injuries. It was later decided, humane euthanasia was the only alternative. The dog’s necropsy revealed she had various injuries in different stages of healing suggesting an extended length of abuse and torture.

When authorities investigated where Czerkawski lived with the senior woman, Janina Stock, they found evidence of Puppy Doe’s blood.

Larry Tipton, defense attorney for Czerkawski, stated the dog ran away and someone else abused Puppy Doe. According to  Mr. Tipton, the defense will bring forth a witness who stated he saw a dog that looked like Kyra in different parts of Quincy.

As the trial proceeded, the witnesses who discovered Puppy Doe testified. They said the dog had been lying in the middle of a small side road, and when the driver beeped his horn, the dog didn’t move. That’s when the couple checked on the dog and saw the extent of her injuries describing her as “all skin and bones.” The couple took Puppy Doe to their home and cared for the sweet dog until Animal Control came and rushed her to an emergency veterinarian.

Czerkawski is currently in prison for stealing from the old woman as well as a nearby church. He is slated to be released in 2021, but could seek parole next spring. He is following his trial at the courthouse through his Polish language interpreter.

    This hunk of horse manure isn’t even man enough to admit his cruelty – his piss poor excuse of ‘the other guy did it’ doesn’t fly – he KNOWS he is guilty of the horrific abuse he did to Puppy Doe and needs to pay a steep price. This is lousy excuse for a man, much less a human being ripped off an elderly lady he was supposed to care for, so why would abusing a little innocent dog be below this maggot??? He did it, he knows he did it, and I so hope the judge sees through his flimsy excuse – he deserves to be tied to a tree and used as target practice – useless waste – no jail time will be enough.

    Of course he does! Justice, in this case, would be to exact the same punishment upon him that he used to torture this innocent dog. He deserves nothing less. He’s a monster, and he deserves to be treated like one.
