Maria Aguilar, 36, was arrested by the ASPCA and charged with animal cruelty.
The young bulldog, named Spike, had been abused repeatedly over the past few months.
During his short life, Spike has sustained a hip fracture, a broken leg, three broken teeth and injuries to his ears, according to ASPCA Assistant Director Joseph Pentangelo.
The pup, which is being treated at the ASPCA hospital, is also virtually blind in his right eye.
ASPCA investigators were called to Aguilar's house on Feb. 24 after witnesses reported hearing a dog crying.
One of the witnesses used a camera phone to tape the abuse, also capturing Spike's howls of pain. Aguilar is seen throwing Spike to the ground and then slamming him with a snow shovel.
OK..... I would love to know what goes on in the mind of sick people like this when they decide to start abusing animals. I commend the person for video taping it and sending it to the police. We need more people to report abuse when they see it, rather than turning their backs to it. There is just no excuse for this or ANY violence against animals. And if you watch the video below you will see, who I assume is her son say "We don't want to see her go to jail, IT'S JUST A DOG". I have no words for that comment
