The owner of a puppy, who was found dead on the end of a chain in Newnan, Georgia, told police officers, “it’s just a dog.” According to multiple sources, 26-year-old Patdrious Devoshun Meriwether is facing an aggravated animal cruelty charge following the discovery of an emaciated, dead puppy chained to a tree outside of his home.

The authorities made the grim discovery while visiting Meriwether’s residence as part of a probation compliance check. Deputy Chief Mark Cooper stated that the deceased pup, who was secured to a chain with a rusty padlock, was in an “obvious state of malnutrition.” A dirty, leaf-filled bowl was located out of the puppy’s reach because the chain was “wrapped around her head.”

According to the Newnan Times Herald, Meriwether was arrested and booked into the Coweta County Jail on a $7900 bond.
