A dog owner has been jailed for stabbing his dog 12 times and leaving him to die on a Sunderland beach.

Luke Profitt, 22, inflicted horrific injuries on the German shepherd in a frenzied attack on December 12 last year, before the public discovered the dog in serious condition at Hendon Beach. Vets tried to save her, but the animal died after suffering cardiac arrest.

Proffitt told officers that “it’s not illegal to kill your dog.” reports ChronicleLive.

On Monday he appeared at Newcastle Crown Court and pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to an animal. He was jailed for 18 months and banned from owning animals for 18 years.

Wildlife Enforcement Officer PC Peter Baker of Northumbria Police described it as an “absolutely horrific case” and said he welcomed Proffit’s verdict.

He said: “There is no question that the dog was subjected to ongoing violence and she was found by members of the public on Hendon beach with horrific injuries to her body and neck.

“Proffit is one of the first offenders in our squad to be jailed since tougher penalties for the most heinous animal cruelty crimes were introduced in courts across the UK last summer.

“We are a nation of animal lovers and it’s always disappointing and upsetting when crimes like this happen. I hope this case sends a strong message – anyone who harms or abuses animals will be brought to justice.

“We will continue to work with our fantastic colleagues and partners, including the RSPCA, to educate everyone – including young people in schools across the North East – about the importance of caring for animals.”

Proffit’s dog was healthy and a good weight before the attack, the court heard. The violent attack was seen as a serious but isolated incident, committed at a time when the accused was going through a mental crisis.
