Dog abuser grabbed pet by scruff of the neck and threw her onto patio floor

A thug was caught throwing a dog to the ground and kicking it in the face in a string of horrific attacks.

Andrew Robert Ide, 23, admitted to animal cruelty charges following an RSPCA investigation which saw him sentenced at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court.

The animal charity saw videos showing Ide of Waterloo Road, Havant, Hampshire, booting little Roxy's body before pinning her down by standing on her nose, Daily Echo reports.

In another clip he could be seen standing on the small terrier-type dog's neck with his right foot.

Ide was also filmed holding Roxy by the scruff of her neck in his left hand while using his right to grip tightly around the muzzle area of her face.

She was heard squealing and whimpering when Ide cruelly threw her onto the patio floor.

The animal cruelty continued with Ide captured kicking Roxy in the face with his right foot, only to casually walk away.

RSPCA Inspector Hannah Nixon, who investigated for the animal welfare charity, said: “Causing unnecessary suffering to an animal is an offence under the Animal Welfare Act and the use of physical punishments has been shown to jeopardise the physical and mental health of dogs and cause suffering.”

As punishment for his crimes, Ide was ordered on March 16 to carry out a 12-month community order with 250 hours unpaid work and 16 rehabilitation activity requirement (RAR) days.

The dog abuser must also pay £200 court costs and a £95 victim surcharge.

Thanks to the RSCPA, Roxy now has a loving forever home free of Ide's regular unprovoked attacks and taunts.
