BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (FOX 35 WOFL) – The veteran who claims his service dog’s tail was injured so badly by a groomer that it had to be amputated is speaking out about the horrific incident.
James Cordell Doughty Suthann, 37, was arrested on a felony animal cruelty charge, after investigators said he became angry when the 8-year-old German Shepard, named TT, would not sit still while being groomed.
The incident happened on Feb. 6 at a grooming salon in Brevard County, where Suthann was working as a contract employee.
The owner said he found the groomer on the internet and that the facility had good ratings.
“I took her to the groomer’s for an appointment at 11 o’ clock in the morning and thought she was going to be in good hands,” said the owner. “When we went to pick her up, she was acting really funny.”
When TT wouldn’t sit down and seemed like she was in pain, the family took her to the emergency veterinary hospital who gave him them the horrifying news.
