Kirkham said the puppy – a Cavachon known as Murphy – had bitten him so he lashed out and sent the tiny dog flying across the bathroom. Murphy was taken to an emergency vet in a comatose state but died three hours later.

A post mortem examination revealed the puppy had suffered a traumatic injury which had caused extensive internal damage to his skull, mouth, abdominal cavity, kidney, lung, and intestine.

Pleading guilty, Kirkham claimed that the puppy had defecated on the floor so he’d put him in the bath. He told the court Murphy had bitten him so he struck him, which caused the dog to fly across the bathroom, hitting either the wall or the toilet.

Kirkham’s girlfriend appears to have forgiven him for killing a tiny puppy.

Kirkham’s girlfriend, Alisha Marsh, with whom he currently shares another dog known as Lucky, is standing by him and told a friend not to believe what was reported in the newspaper.

“There is no excuse for an innocent animal to be subjected to violence”

  1. Sick to death of these horrible acts of cruelty against animals. This was a baby who probably defacated on the floor & was launched against the wall because of it.
    I wish we had an animal cruelty register, like a sex register. The animal cruelty register should stay with you for life. If I was an employer I would check this & no way would I employ these horrible heartless knobheads…….

  2. Another cowardly attack on a innocent defenceless PUPPY , THERE IS NO EXCUSE, he is very lucky it was not my daughters, I would knock that smirk on his face, I can’t see any remorse, can you! 😠
