Davies, aged 30, of The Farthings, Dudley, admitted allowing Gucci to be dangerously out of control near his home, between Stourbridge Road and Junction Street, and was jailed for 12 weeks.
The court heard he had two breeding pairs of Presa Canario dogs – a type originally from the Canary Islands – and a litter of eight puppies that were going to new homes next week as he planned to come off benefits to breed and sell the animals.Because who better to sell potential killers than a criminal?
I mean, why does anyone think the sort of people this man almost certainly lives amongst and socialises with want these type of dogs?
But District Judge David Miller, who heard Davies had previous offences including robbery, threatening violence, possessing cannabis and being drunk on a railway station, told him he was not a ‘fit person’ to have dogs and banned him from keeping them for two years.Hurrah!
Miss Amy Jackson, defending, immediately said he would appeal to the crown court against the sentence - but the judge refused to suspend the jail term or ban pending a new hearing.Double hurrah! But isn't it sad that this needs to be applauded, because it's so damn rare..?
I mean, we all know why people of this type want these type of dogs. It isn't to play 'Fetch!' in the park, now is it?
