This dog is in desperate need of a new owner after a pitiful apology from a man who picked up his pet and slammed him to the ground … causing him to temporarily stop.
It happened in downtown Vancouver and luckily worried onlookers shot this video and sent it to the local SPCA. The dog, a pit bull, was barking as its owner argued with a cyclist. Witnesses say the dog rushed at the cyclist … possibly at the request of the owner.
But look … after the argument was over, the owner picked up the helpless dog – over his shoulders – and threw him onto the concrete sidewalk. The dog howled and was clearly in distress.
You can hear the horrified witnesses, who immediately called the police. Officers reportedly arrested the owner, but then released him without charging him. However, an investigation is still ongoing. It is not known if the police saw this video.
An SPCA staff member told CTV … the dog is physically fine, but showing signs of mental distress after the savage body shot.
