CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Sentencing Wednesday morning for a Cleveland woman convicted of abusing her dog.
Dog owner Tamara Johnson must spend the next 30 Sundays in jail for animal cruelty, animal neglect and animal abuse. Also, she may not own a dog for five years.
Johnson moved and left her dog, Artemis, chained up outside in the summertime heat for months.
Artemis was emaciated and had two broken bones when rescued by Badges for Bullies. The dog’s nails were so long they curled over, restricting her walking. She was treated for pneumonia following her stay at Cleveland Animal Control. Several weeks later, Artemis was diagnosed with cancer, and lived out her remaining days in a loving foster home.
