On a street in north Birmingham, England, the owner of a terrified pup was videoed hitting and dragging the little one down a residential street along the pavement. Footage of the disturbing situation was filmed by a concerned passer-by who contacted the RSPCA; an investigation to track down the owner of the dog has since been launched.
According to the Birmingham Live News, RSPCA Inspector Beth Boyd, the witness reported the incident on February 8 after she spotted the petrified dog barely able to move along Warren Farm Road. There she saw the man beating and then dragging the defenseless little guy.
“In the footage you can see the little golden- colored puppy being dragged along the pavement by the man walking him. He appears to be limping and holding up a rear leg. The man is dressed in blue jeans a black jacket with the hood up and trainers. The puppy is being walked on a red lead.”
The witness then described the man leaning over the cowering puppy and repeatedly hitting it. Inspector Boyd is appealing to the public asking anyone who recognizes the man or the dog to get in touch with the RSPCA by calling 0300 123 8018.
