According to police officer Norbert Skalsk, the 10-week-old pup was left with a swollen face, a missing tooth and a concussion.
Hüsch’s girlfriend made a formal complaint to the police on February 17th after receiving the video through WhatsApp.
In the video, Hüsch also threatens to kill the little one and anyone else who provokes him.

Luckily, the puppy quickly found a foster family where he will be loved and recover from the trauma.
In Germany, the Animal Protection Act states sentences of up to 3 years in prison or a fine.
