Sam, a 12-year-old German shepard, had such a bad neglected ear infection that he had to be put down. His vet said that Sam’s ear infection was the worst he had ever seen.
Sam’s owner, who buys and sells horses for a living, pleaded guilty to causing the animal unnecessary suffering and that his dog had bad ears for the past six years. He said that: “I had taken him to the vet and the PDSA and really he should have been put down but I had had him for eight years and was reluctant to do that.â€
Sam’s owner has been told that he could face jail and will return to court on June 29 for his sentence.
