ANNAPOLIS — An Annapolis man has been arrested after he was seen on video kicking and slamming his girlfriend's dog on the floor by the throat.

On Nov. 6 at about 10:50 p.m. officers responded to the 1000 block of Carriage Hill Court in Annapolis for a report of an animal abuse/cruelty complaint.

Officers received information indicating the victim saw her boyfriend kick her dog several times on the security camera. Officers arrived at the home and viewed the video with the victim.

The video showed the suspect cornering their 3-year-old Polish Sheepdog and kicking it five times in its side while the dog screamed in pain.

Another incident was seen several minutes later showing the suspect picking the dog up by its throat, carrying it across the room over the suspect’s head, and slamming the dog on the floor.

The suspect then kicked the dog one additional time, prior to the dog running off.

Officers arrested the suspect, Jeffrey Keith Donohue, and charged him accordingly.

The victim took the dog to a veterinarian/animal hospital for possible leg injuries.

Police say there is no update on the condition of dog at this time.
