Man who poured boiling water over dog is jailed for 16 weeks

  

A man who subjected a dog to prolonged abuse, including pouring boiling water on her, has been jailed for 16 weeks. Mark Sharp (DOB 27/09/1982), from Liverpool, also admitted beating the dog and breaking nine of her ribs and fracturing her pelvis over a period of 4 months, from August 2015 until January 2016.  On 9 September 2016, Mark Sharp pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to the dog.

On Monday, 3 October 2016, at Liverpool Magistrates' Court, Mark Sharp was sentenced to the prison sentence and was banned from keeping all animals for 15 years. The dog, a 3 year old King Charles spaniel named Daisy, was owned by Sharp's then partner, who did not realise that Sharp was abusing her dog. The owner took Daisy to the vets with various injuries which were thought at the time to have been caused by accidents.

The incidents came to light after Daisy was taken to the vet in January this year with severe burns all over her back and her head, caused by having boiling water poured over her. 

RSPCA inspector Claire Fisher said:- "Her owner, who is no longer with Sharp, was absolutely horrified when she learnt of the full extent of the horrors inflicted on her beloved dog. This prolonged period of cruelty appalled me, especially when I learned of the extent of poor Daisy's injuries, broken pelvic bones, broken ribs and 3rd degree burns, all sustained over a period of 4 months. By Sharp's own admission, Daisy would cower and urinate around him. Since Daisy was subjected to this vile behaviour, it is a miracle she is still so trusting of people. People can rest assured that Daisy remains in the most loving home and has always had every need, and more, met by her owner."
