Owner of dog found with broken legs arrested

Dog found with two broken legs
A pregnant dog was found with both of her legs snapped. An owner of the dog has now been arrested.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – There’s been an arrest in an especially cruel animal abuse case we reported last week.

The front legs of a Chihuahua belonging to an Albuquerque family were somehow snapped in two and then she was left suffering, without treatment for at least five days.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested 26-year-old Ana Cortez-Sabela, the dog owner, at her South Valley home Tuesday.

She’s charged with extreme animal cruelty which is a felony.

There’s a warrant for her husband too but he’s out of town.

The owners surrendered four unharmed dogs on the property and animal services will try to find them new homes.
