Man sentenced “to eight months in jail, all but one month suspended” for beating a Chihuahua “for urinating on the floor”

From a press release:

“DC resident Perry Rogers was sentenced on March 12, 2015 to eight months in jail, all but one month suspended, one year of probation, and domestic violence classes by Judge Michael Ryan. Rogers was arrested May 7, 2014 on a felony arrest warrant. After a grand jury investigation, Rogers was indicted on August 12 on one charge of felony animal cruelty, to which he pled guilty on August 29, 2014.

The Washington Humane Society (WHS) was first alerted to this significant abuse on March 10, 2014 after receiving a call from the owner of the dog Coco, a Chihuahua, that Rogers had allegedly swung Coco around by his leash and beaten him for urinating on the floor. When a WHS Humane Law Enforcement Officer arrived at the home, Coco was lying in the bedroom, motionless and breathing slowly. There was dried blood on his head and his left eye was protruding from the socket. There was also significant bruising across his skull and neck. When the officer attempted to touch the dog, the dog fell over onto his back and remained motionless. Coco was rushed to an emergency hospital shortly thereafter where he received extensive treatment and rehabilitation.

Coco was adopted on March 31,, 2014 by a former Washington Humane Society Officer who has two other Chihuahuas who are also former WHS Humane Law Enforcement cases.”
