Andrew Lloyd Pugh of Tyn Y Coed, Ganllwyd, Dolgellau, and Dominic John Thomas of Ffordd Heulog, Dolgellau, appeared at Caernarfon Magistrates Court on Wednesday, November 16 for sentencing.
It follows an earlier hearing on October 19 where each of the men pleaded guilty to one charge each under the Animal Welfare Act following an investigation into suspected wildlife crimes.
Pugh pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to a dark brown/black female terrier known as Storm by failing to provide veterinary treatment in respect of severe dental disease.
Thomas pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to a brown male terrier dog known as Charlie by failing to provide veterinary treatment in respect of a severe and infected facial injury on the right side of the dog’s face.
Pugh was sentenced to a community order of 240 hours of unpaid work, and ordered to pay a £95 victim surcharge and costs of £600. He was disqualified for five years from keeping dogs. An Animal Welfare Act section 35 order was made also for a female black Patterdale called Sally who is still owned by Pugh.
