A dog is fighting for his life in Phoenix, Arizona, after his owner allegedly stabbed him and left him for dead. As reported by AZ Family, 26-year-old Andrian P. Aliguin was arrested and is facing felony charges for his July 9 attack on his three-year-old Redbone Hound.
Jenna Moffitt, an emergency animal medical technician with Arizona Humane Society, told the news agency:
The dog’s neck and chest were soaked in blood.
Aliguin, speaking through an interpreter, told the authorities that he tried to kill his dog after the chased people. A translator was told that, “the dog was chasing people outside and that he brought it in the house and stabbed it and killed it.”
Aliguin was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail for a felony charge of animal cruelty and a misdemeanor charge of failure to provide medical treatment. He has already been released and is scheduled to appear in court on July 25. The dog is recovering at the Arizona Humane Society’s Second Chance Animal Hospital; his prognosis is listed as “fair.”
