Anybody who treats and animal like that, especially a dog, should be taken out and severely horsewhipped.
Of all the animals God gave us, dogs are our helpmates in our work and our infirmities, they save people, they do police work, they are our faithful companions, and a comfort when we're down. They have a special connection and affinity for us, and that should be cherished and respected.
These people are lower than scum. The sentences were too light. There is nothing more shameful than mistreating a dog, except mistreating the young or the elderly. And how dare this scumbag father show his daughter this is appropriate conduct.
Even more puzzling is why did this father/daughter team even bother to purchase this innocent dog in the first place? If they obtained the animal with the intention of killing it, they really have severe mental problems. They need to be punished harshly.
