Accused Chihuahua dumpers want dog back

Two cousins charged with tossing a Chihuahua out the window of a moving car now say that it was all a big misunderstanding

And they want their dog back.

Jimmy Correa and Jenny Torres were released on their own recognizance after being arraigned Wednesday on animal cruelty charges. Police said that Correa threw Princess, the Chihuahua, out the car window as Torres was driving. They then returned to see if the dog was still there. That’s when residents got their license plate number and called police.

Correa, however, said the dog merely jumped out when he opened the car door, according to NBC 10. (Click the link for a video report.)

Police said Torres signed the dog over to be adopted when she was arrested on Monday, but Correa says she misunderstood what she was signing and wants the dog back. The dog, Correa said, belongs to Torres’ 3-year-old daughter.

“She’s been crying ever since. We want the dog back, but they’re not going to give it back,“ he said.

The dog is currently at the Forever Paws Animal Shelter in Fall River.

Witnesses saw them throw the dog out the window! They are liars. If the dog jumped out the door, then why did he drive away?! Because he doesn’t tell the truth! Liar.

i don’t believe people accused of animal cruelty, specially in a case like this where there is a witness should be allowed to take their dog back unless they are found not-guilty.

However, if they are in fact found not-guilty, they should have a right to get their dog back. It wouldn’t make sense if they are not guilty but still get a punishment.
