Man who struck his dog until it was ‘shaking’ and ‘whimpering’ pleads for its return by showing a judge cute photos of it all dressed up

  • Krissada Ratchasombat pleaded guilty to animal cruelty with his dog Cooper 
  • Cooper was seized last month after a witness saw his owner strike him  
  • When police arrived, Cooper could be seen ‘fearful, shaking and whimpering’
  • Ratchasombat said he became angry after he found his slippers chewed up 
  • He then pleaded with the magistrate to return his dog to him

A pet owner who beat his dog up until it was left ‘shaking’ and ‘whimpering’ showed a judge cute social media pictures of the animal dressed up in the hope it would be returned.  

One-year-old beagle puppy Cooper was seized by police from his owner Krissada Ratchasombat last month, following an incident where he repeatedly smacked his dog.

Ratchasombat was arrested after a witness on the street below saw him hit Cooper.

The witness claimed they saw Ratchasombat strike the dog’s body with ‘considerable force’ at least 10 times, with the puppy whimpering in pain on each occasion.

‘With each strike the dog was yelping loud enough for the witness to hear on the other side of the street,’ police said in court documents reported by The Daily Telegraph

Ratchasombat was charged with animal cruelty and pleaded guilty this week. 

Police said Cooper could be seen ‘fearful, shaking and whimpering’ when they arrived at Ratchasombat’s residence.

Cooper was then taken into the custody of the RSPCA. 

Ratchasombat said he had become angry with the dog after he found his slippers chewed up and admitted he had struck the animal. 

In court, Ratchasombat pleaded with the magistrate to return his dog back to him, showing photos of Copper all dressed up in social media posts.

He said that he loved Cooper and he ‘always dressed him and fed him well’. 

It was revealed in court that Ratchasombat had undergone anger management classes to prevent future incidents from taking place.  

Deputy Chief Magistrate Theo Tsavdaridis did not record a conviction against Ratchasombat but instead gave him a 12-month conditional release order and reminded him that the offence should be ‘denounced’.

‘These types of matters carry 12 months’ jail, which is indicative of the way in which the community views the mistreatment of animal,’ Magistrate Tsavdaridis said. 

The judge left it to Ratchasombat to convince the RSPCA to return Cooper to him. 

The RSPCA said they are still considering the incident, with the officer responsible currently on leave.
