Kevin Dean Parrish of Lyons, southeast of Salem, was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of first-degree aggravated animal abuse, the Associated Press reported.
Marion County sheriff’s spokesman Don Thomson said the six-year-old Chihuahua-miniature pinscher mix, named Kudo, sustained cuts, bruises, singed fur and burns on three of his legs.
Parrish had been caring for the dog while his grandmother was out of town. He told deputies he had reached into Kudo’s kennel and was bitten.
Deputies say he punched the dog, tried to strangle him, then put him in the oven, set at 350-degrees.
When he heard his brother coming into the house, he took the dog out, officers said. Parrish’s brother and father took the animal to a veterinarian.
Parrish’s next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 30.
The vet who treated Kudo said he expects him to make a full recovery.

No, that’s not the ice cream man rolling down the streets of Lisichansk, a city of 100,000 in Ukraine.
It’s a crematorium on wheels, purchased by the city to more handily dispose of stray dogs — sometimes while they are still alive — as part of the country’s efforts to clean up its streets before next year’s Euro 2012 soccer championship.
(About two and a half minutes into the video above you can see city officials showing off their mobile crematorium.)
The vehicle is staffed by three employees — a driver, an oven operator and another who shoots strays with a syringe gun, paralyzing them.
The crematorium is capable of burning 40 kilos worth of dogs and cats at a time.
Lisichansk is not alone in trying to clear the streets of strays before the soccer championship, being co-hosted by Ukraine and Poland.
The cities of Kiev, Lviv, Kharkiv and Donetsk — all of which are hosting matches — have stray removal programs underway. In Kharkiv and Kiev, plans have been made to open shelters for strays found in the vicinity of Euro 2012 stadiums, but some other cities opt for extermination instead.
Sometimes, Lisichansk lends its mobile crematorium to neighboring jurisdictions. How thoughtful.
Despite protests, from inside and outside the country, the stray removal program continues, and the mobile crematorium — which features temperatures of 900 degrees — keeps rolling.
A petition appealing to Ukrainian authorities to stop cremating live animals can be found on the website Care2.
According to the petition, Ukraine — rather than focusing on spaying and neutering and finding homes for strays — has long opted for less humane practices.
Stray dogs and cats were previously killed using an illegal poison called ditiline that paralyzed their respiratory muscles are paralyzed.
Officials consider the crematorium ” more modern” and “environmentally safe,” the petition says.

A Wisconsin man has received a stern lecture and a sentence of six years in prison for cooking his ex-girlfriend’s dog.
A jury found Terry Kleiman of Green Bay guilty of burglary and mistreatment of animals after he broke into his former girlfriend’s apartment and put her 5-month-old Pekingese-poodle mix into an oven set at 350 degrees to get back at her following their break-up.
When the girlfriend, Alex Rouse, arrived home from the Oval Office Gentleman’s Club, where both she and Kleiman worked, she found the dog dead inside the oven, according to the Associated Press.
Kleiman was also ordered to pay Rouse $1,500 in restitution.
“I was almost nauseous when I thought about what you did,” the judge said in pronouncing the sentence. “I can’t imagine what that dog went through.”

A tipster has received the $2,500 reward PETA offered last fall for information leading to the conviction of a man who placed a South Carolina homeowner’s dog in the oven during a burglary, propped a chair against the door and cooked the dog alive.
Teofilo Falaniko Jr., 21, was sentenced to 11 years in prison and three-and-a-half-years probation after pleading guilty to two counts of second-degree burglary and one count of unlawful treatment to animals, SCnow.com reported.
Dillon police said Falaniko already was in jail on two other burglary charges when he was charged. He told police he placed the dog — a pug named Penny — into the oven because it bit him during the burglary.
The tipster, whose identity is being withheld, overheard Falaniko bragging about his crime and contacted authorities.
Falaniko admitted to ransacking Bonnie Bowens’ Owens Street residence while she was at church. When Bowens got home, she noticed her front door kicked in and called police. Officer checked the over and found the dog dead.
