One new article link has been added to our Related News page. WSFA published an article titled Man sentenced in Dallas Co. puppy hanging case.

The boyfriend in the Dallas County animal abuse case has been sentenced with jail time and community service after being accused of hanging a puppy from the ceiling and photographing it.

23-year-old Andrew Parish, who appeared in court Tuesday morning, has been sentenced to 6 months in jail, 24 months probation and 100 hours of community service. Parish’s girlfriend 26-year-old Caroline Dunnam will not face any charges because Parish admitted to being the one who committed the abuse.

Previously the couple voluntarily relinquished their ownership rights to the puppy, now known as “Timmy” during a Jan. 21 court hearing. Authorities were alerted to the animal abuse case after a photo was posted on Facebook that led them to the dog’s owners.
