- Owner let Jack Russell-Maltese cross & # 39; JayZ & # 39; only while she went on a cruise
- RSPCA had to lay him down because his injuries were too heinous to treat
A Jack Russell-Maltese cross was erected after his owner went on a cruise and left him at home with horrific injuries.
The owner, a 39-year-old woman from Lilyfield in the southwest of Sydney, lost an appeal against her criminal conviction on Tuesday.
In August she appeared to have seriously neglected her dog, named JayZ, and was convicted of multiple counts of animal abuse.
Maltese crosses Jack Russell Terrier, JayZ, who was found with such serious injuries that he had to be put down
The black-and-white dog was wounded so badly that he could only move by dragging his two hind legs
The black-and-white dog was wounded so badly that he could only move by dragging his two hind legs.
Inspectors from the RSPCA went to the Lilyfield unit on 27 February where they found the dog with horrific injuries.
The woman told the court that she was trying to use a spray and bandage to cover the wound before leaving the dog with her mother before going on the cruise.
An RSPCA veterinarian found the open wound 35 square centimeters and the dog also suffered alopecia hair loss, muscle loss in both hind legs, a swollen penis, fleas, periodontitis and overgrown nails in his two front legs.
Further physical examination showed that the paralysis of the dog's hind legs was a result of untreated intervertebral disc disease.
As JayZ dragged his hind legs, there was constant pressure on the ankle joint, which subsequently led to an ulcer so severe that the bone protruded.
The veterinarian also discovered anemia that is believed to be caused by the fleas or blood loss from the open wound.

According to the RSPCA, the dog should undergo periodontal treatment at least three months before JayZ was found.
JayZ also needed treatment for the fleas at least two weeks prior to when he was found, and ear infection treatment at least one week before he was found.
After the extensive physical examination, the vet thought it cruel to keep the dog alive and he was human euthanized.
The 39-year-old faced the local court of Downing Center and received a total penalty of a ten-month correction warrant where she had to appear in court if she was summoned and undertook 75 hours of community service.

She was also forbidden to purchase, acquire, take possession of or attach animals to animals for five years.
The woman appealed the convictions and on Tuesday the appeal was dismissed from the court.
The judge said the appeal was dismissed because & # 39; these live animals are so dependent on us that we have a high duty of care & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Therefore, if I had sentenced you in the first instance, I would have looked at a more severe sentence. You are not just you … there is too much animal abuse in our community, "he said.
