Owner of dog kicked on camera at dog daycare speaks out

It’s every pet owner’s worst nightmare: entrusting your fur baby to the care of supposed professionals only to shockingly discover you’ve been sorely mistaken. Adding insult to injury? Seeing this hard truth with your own eyes when you’re thousands of miles away and unable to immediately rescue your beloved animal. This is the scenario Mike La Salvia of Tallmadge, Ohio, found himself and his pup Leo in. While La Salvia was vacationing in Mexico earlier this month he alleges he checked the doggie daycare’s webcam and witnessed one of the staff members drag Leo by the collar and kick him twice. The distraught dog owner says he abruptly cut short his trip and then spent 48 hours in various airports trying to make his way home last-minute to his pup in Ohio. He said his feelings upon viewing the webcam footage were “total pain.” While La Salvia was en route home to Leo, his sister quickly removed Leo from the day care center and watched him until her brother returned. The woman who allegedly abused Leo did not respond to a request for comment. La Salvia says he plans to file a police report against her.
