South Florida man says his roommate broke his puppy's leg after it relieved itself on the bed


(WPLG, CNN NEWSOURCE) There are disturbing allegations of animal abuse after an argument between two roommates in Miami.

Jimmy Diaz says he plans to sue his roommate, after he accused the man of abusing and injuring his puppy.

Diaz says the puppy relieved itself on his roommate's bed.

In response, he says the roommate grabbed the puppy by the neck and slammed it on the ground, breaking one of its legs.

The puppy still hasn't had surgery to fix the broken bone. Diaz says he wants his roommate to pay for it. "The dog is inside, has been there without the surgery. The surgery has to be done ASAP. And to this day I still get no response from the roommate though."
The surgery will cost about $1,000.

Police say they can't charge the roommate because there were no witnesses to the abuse.
