A man accused of attacking his dog will be back in court on Thursday.
Investigators say a neighbor videotaped the incident.
Police arrested 30-year-old Ronald Turner, who claimed the dog attacked him.
Police released disturbing still pictures from that video, but WYMT has chosen not to air them.
Investigators say Turner hit and choked the dog and slammed a dog house on top of the Labrador.
The puppy named Romeo is recovering at an animal shelter.
