Suspect in earlier abuse case is caught brutally beating a puppy


Jones, and girlfriend Sherry Sanney, admitted to owning Gladys, but they claimed they "sold the puppy several days before" the incident. Because of a lack of evidence in that case, neither Jones nor Shanney were charged. 

The injured puppy was taken the SPCA of Niagara shelter. Now dubbed Karma by the SPCA staff, the dog was described as "very sweet considering all that she has endured."

"She does show some signs of physical abuse including abrasions to her head and hind legs and urine burns on her belly," SPCA Shelter Director Amy Lewis said. "She will be placed in foster care with her rescuer, Zimmerman, who has expressed interest in adopting her."

Lewis praised Zimmerman and her partner stepped forward to save the puppy.

"(They) didn't just drive away as they so easily could have done," Lewis said. "Thanks to Zimmerman, Karma will no longer have to endure that violence. She is safe and sound now and will have the home she deserves."
