Isaak Gowhari, 34, was arrested in November for animal abuse after he surrendered a 7-month-old doberman pinscher that he had been regularly beating. The dog had broken ribs, evidence of healed ribs and injuries to her leg, snout and head.
Now, he's getting jail time.
"Gowhari told the animal shelter workers that he was surrendering the dog because his hands hurt from hitting the animal," said Los Angeles Animal Control Officer Ernesto Poblano, a member of the Los Angeles Animal Cruelty Task Force (ACTF).Yeah, he's a real winner, that Isaak. He's getting 45 days in County, 45 days of community service, 48 hours counseling and 36 months of probation.
Oh, and he can't own a pet for three years. That'll show him.
