Man charged for choking roommate’s dog, who pooped on a rug

A Florida man is facing animal cruelty charges for allegedly choking his roommate’s small dog, who had pooped on a rug. According to CBS 12 News, the alleged dog abuser, 21-year-old Brenden Geary, initially denied having anything to do with the dog’s injuries, but later admitted his cruel act to the police after investigators found inconsistencies with his story. After extensive questioning, Geary told the authorities that Dixie, an 11-pound Yorkie, had “s–t and pissed all over that rug.” Geary was the only person at home with the dog when the incident took place.

The dog had been found unresponsive on Monday night by her owner – Geary, and his roommate (Dixie’s owner), took the dog to a veterinarian who determined that her injuries, including bruises on her ears, face, neck, and abdomen, were consistent with asphyxiation.

Evidence, including blood and feces, found at the residence indicated that a violent situation had taken place. Geary has been arrested and taken to the Flagler County Jail. According to the Daily Commercial, Dixie was released from the veterinary hospital and she is expected to make a full recovery.

    Filthy POS!!! Did it ever occur to that maggot to simply take the dog outside? THAT’S what a responsible person and ROOMMATE does, not try to kill and / or abuse the dog!!!!

    Hope he gets the same treatment he gave that innocent babe when he’s in prison.

    Disgusting POS, you have to let them out once in awhile stupid. I’m just glad the poor little dog will be alright, but this POS needs to pay and pay dearly for what he did!

    Big f’kn scum, to do this to a small animal. Makes him feel superior to a tiny dog. Oh, this big man needs to go to jail and have the friendly inmates show him around the block a few times. He won’t be able to walk after his time there. Glad the little dog is ok.

    Love that the inmates (friendly inmates)show him around the block a few times and then he won’t be able to walk after his time there. Brendon Geary left that tiny innocent dog near death and unable to breathe. Prosecution to the max , please

    Too bad he can’t receive the death penalty by asphyxiation! Prosecute to the max please!! Hope the pet parent doesn’t allow him back in as the roommate! Hope he’s in the general prison population and they rip him a new orifice while the guards look the other way! Drop the soap asshole!
