TRAPPED in a squalid cage all day every day, German Shepherd Jack starved to death inch-deep in his own excrement.
One of his owners, 25-year-old Paul James Brunsden was jailed for 20 weeks and banned from ever keeping an animal again at Dartford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (August 1).
Jack’s co-owner – Stacey Louise Lockhurst - was warned she faced a similar fate.
Judge Michael Kelly said it was “one of the worst cases of animal cruelty I have ever come across.”
He added: “This dog was effectively tortured and neglected.”
Brunsden, formerly of Neptune Terrace in Erith but now living in Hornchurch, and 27-year-old Lockhurst both pleaded guilty to two charges of causing unnecessary suffering to the black and tan dog.
One charge was for not addressing the fact the pet was underweight and another for keeping it in a small, squalid cage.
