A dog drowned in a swimming pool after a man, who knew that the dog couldn’t swim, threw him in. According to NBC Miami, the cruel incident took place at a residence in Pembroke Pines, Florida, late Thursday night in the midst of a domestic disturbance.

The terrible situation

The dog who was thrown into the pool was said to be disabled – the police have arrested 40-year-old Juan M. Gonzalez on animal cruelty and battery charges. In a statement, the police recounted the allegations:

“The suspect also intentionally picked up the family dog and knowingly tossed the animal into a pool. This act occurred with the suspect having an understanding the dog could not swim and resulted in the animal’s inhumane death.”

As reported by the Dayton Daily News, the man’s pregnant ex-wife was also injured on the night in question. The arrest report states:

“The victim advised that during the physical altercation, the defendant was screaming and yelling and destroying personal property within the house. The victim also stated that she could hear the dog apparently suffering and crying for a short period of time. Ultimately, the family dog drowned.”

The suspect has denied hurting his ex-wife, but has admitted to throwing the dog into the pool.

    Please police, tie this scum up and throw him into a pool and let him drown just the same way he did to his ex-wifes disabled dog. He had to continue to get back at her and this tiny pooch suffered for it. This vile monster should not be allowed to live a second longer. Do this country a favor and remove him permanently from living any longer. I know that won’t happen, but some justice must be done for this innocent dog.

    This nasty lowlife deserves everything he has coming to him and much much more. Sadly though, with current laws, that won’t be a sufficient deterrent for his uncontrollable selfish anger. I am so sad for the poor little dog who must have died utterly terrified knowing he couldn’t save himself and with no help forthcoming. We are left wondering why the exwife didn’t react even though she claims she heard her little dog suffering and crying – was Gonzalez threatening her life or was she just not bothered? She should have closed the poor dog in one of the rooms out of harm’s way before things escalated as they did, so I consider her partly responsible for the precious pooch’s tragic death too. She would have had opportunity to secure him while Gonzalez was on his smashing rampage, as she must have known what he was like as they had been partners. Hand her some penalties too for her contribution.

      Agree with you. She should have protected this innocent, defenseless treasure. She has some responsibility for his death…….
