Barking: he man arrested in the dog’s case told a witness that he taped the dog’s snout because it wouldn’t stop barking

His bail was set at $50,000 and he was ordered to surrender a second dog he owned at his residence, police told Fox.

Court documents stated that Dodson bought the dog at the end of May for $20 and told the woman he bought it from that he had taped the dog’s snout because she wouldn’t stop barking.

Treatment: Caitlyn is seen lying down next to a worker from the Charleston Animal Society; over the weekend she underwent hyperbaric and cold laser treatment to save damaged tissue in her mouth

Dodson, who laughed about the claim, reportedly also told the woman that he chained the dog in his front yard but the pooch broke free and escaped, Fox reports, citing an affidavit.
