Police: Man pours hot sauce over puppy during seizure

Posted:

SARASOTA, FL (WFLX) - A Sarasota man faces federal animal cruelty charges after, police say, he poured hot sauce all over a 3-month-old Dachshund-Chihuahua mix puppy.

Police say Ephrian Myles was annoyed at his dog, Gizmo, for yelping during a seizure.

The man's girlfriend took the puppy to a nearby fire department for help. Rescuers worked to save Gizmo who was in terrible shape and could barely breathe.

Gizmo is expected to be okay.
