He Crouched In The Corner As His Owner Beat Him & Set His Tiny Body On Fire

Over the years, social media has been a catalyst for animals who are abused.

A viral video of a Singaporean man who is believed to have set his dog on fire caused an international uproar.

People demanded the SPCA get involved to rescue the dog and bring the man to justice.

The Singapore SPCA got involved by posting images of the man with the dog asking for help locating the duo.

They urged the general public that the dog’s safety was of utmost importance and they wanted to find the dog and get him out of harm’s way.

The video that made its rounds on social media showed the man beating the dog and then setting the animal’s hair on fire.

It was believed the man was based in Thailand and Singapore. Earlier this year, a report to the same Facebook page stated the dog was not likely living in Singapore.

With time ticking and the life of the dog at risk, the SPCA reported the man who allegedly abused the dog turned himself in to police in Thailand. His name is Samuel Woo.

Singapore law dictates that a person found guilty of animal cruelty may be fined as well as serve a prison sentence up to 18 months, or both.

According to AsiaOne, a woman named Min Min Yo, believed to be Woo’s ex-girlfriend sat beside the man when he apologized for his behavior and vowed to “take good care” of the dog.

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
