Puppy survives after being thrown 50 feet from a window - Sydney

An Australian woman who allegedly threw her puppy out of an apartment window 50ft to the ground during a row, has been charged with animal cruelty.

The Staffordshire bull terrier called Kyza survived despite suffering a broken hind leg, internal injuries, a broken bone in his front leg, smashed teeth and head injuries.

Vets in Sydney, who have renamed the puppy 'Will' because of its will to live, described the injuries as one of the worst cases of cruelty they had seen.

Lily Maihi, 24, was refused bail after a court in Parramatta heard she tried to pull the puppy by its paw as it lay on the ground whimpering before a neighbour intervened.

Court documents claim Maihi became 'aggressive' when a friend criticised her for not cleaning up dog muck from the veranda of her flat in the suburb of Kingswood.

It is alleged the woman then 'picked up the dog by its collar' and took him into her bedroom where, using two hands, she threw him out the window onto the concrete below.

A witness went to check on the puppy's injuries, but was confronted by Maihi who then 'took hold of one of the dog's paws and began to pull it.'

When she was told to leave the animal alone Maihi was said to have replied: 'Don't worry, it's my dog.'

She then allegedly went to a phone box and called police to say, 'I threw my dog out the bedroom window.'

The court was told she was currently on two good behaviour bonds and only recently finished a suspended jail sentence.

Vet Sarah Goldsmid who is treating the puppy at the Animal Referral Hospital, said: 'He's had some food and he's wagging his tail.

He's still in a bit of pain but he's recovering quite well. He hasn't tried to bite. He's put up with the pain.'
