Injuries suffered by the dog, named Princess Armani, included a badly damaged eye that was falling out of its socket and a skin infection that was caused by boiling water or hot oil.

Irresponsible Young, who had been left to look after Princess, who had numerous other injuries, did not her to a vet after she suffered the eye injury supposedly in a dog attack.

An RSPCA inspector described Princess’s injuries as the worst he had ever seen. Thankfully she made a full recovery and was rehomed.

Sentence: In September 2014 Young was found guilty and given six months in prison suspended for 12 months with supervision. Young was also ordered to pay £260 costs. He was banned from owning any animal for the next 10 years.

When his body was examined by a vet, he was found to be just over half the weight he should have been.

Smith pleaded guilty to one count of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal between February 5 and March 26 2014.

The RSPCA prosecutor said a post-mortem showed Rocky would have suffered “an enormous amount of stress” before he died.
She added that Rocky’s pain had been “severe, prolonged and avoidable”.

Sentence: suspended six-month prison sentence, three-month curfew; £700 costs; life-long disqualification from owning an animal.
