In a disturbing video posted on social media, an animal advocacy group asked for the public’s help on Thursday identifying the woman seen slapping, hitting and abusing a small Yorkshire terrier.
In the short video, a woman slaps and hits the dog; then she spins the dog in circles by her feet and tosses her down the hallway.
The dog’s name is believed to be Max, and an investigation has been started.
“We reached out to local authorities, who said they have opened an investigation. We are asking people to call to express their concern so action can be taken and the dog removed from the home,” the animal advocacy organization posted on their Facebook page.
If a video like this where they are abusing a dog and laughing has been posted – most likely this is not the only time this has happened.
Woman abusing dog: Dania Kindell
Woman recording: Shad Aja
Please call Columbus, GA. Animal Control Division, phone number: 1 (706) 225-4512.”

Friday update: The Yorkshire terrier has been removed from the woman’s home and is under the care of Animal Control.
At the moment he is receiving medical care, and will then be placed up for adoption to local citizens in the county. The individual has been cited and issued a day to appear in court.
Thank you to everyone who called and expressed their concern about the situation. This is a picture of the yorkie named “Max” from Columbus, Georgia Animal Servives.
