#TheList Ryan Young, born 22/04/1992, of Windermere Rd, Hartlepool TS25 1QT – refused to seek vet treatment for emaciated Yorkie’s horrific injuries
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.
Career criminal Young, who has dozens of convictions, had been left to look after Princess. He did not take the little dog to the vet after she suffered the eye injury supposedly in a dog attack.
Princess Armani has now made a full recovery and has been rehomed. “She is a happy dog and I’m sure she will be fine from now on,” added Inspector Wilson.
RSPCA inspector Clare Wilson said: “It was an awful case to deal with. I have never seen an animal with such horrendous injuries.
“You’ve got to wonder how she got those injuries. It was awful somebody could let that happen to a dog.”
Sentence: six months in prison suspended for 12 months with supervision; £260 costs. Banned from owning any animal for 10 years (expires September 2024).
