Shadow, a young dog, was rescued by the RSPCA in January 2022 after reports from locals who heard her bark in desperation. When rescuers arrived, the unfortunate dog was exhausted and craved attention. His owner appeared in court on August 3, 2022.
A clinical examination by a veterinarian showed that the unfortunate woman must have suffered from this nightmare for at least 2 weeks: “I believe that she suffered for at least 14 days due to lack of proper nutrition. She endured severe hunger, ”the message says.
Her former owner, Joshua Axoll, was charged with child abandonment and child abuse. He pleaded guilty in Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 3 August 2022.
In his defense and in order to minimize the severity of his actions, the perpetrator said that he deeply regrets that he could not do better for his dog.
The man is still banned from owning a pet for the next 10 years, as well as 180 hours of community service and a nearly $700 fine.
