The puppy, which had been named Canelo, suffered skull and rib fractures at the hands of Ramos-Corrales, injuries that caused it to keep falling headfirst. Ramos-Corrales recorded video of the injured puppy and posted on his Instagram account, then later slit Canelo’s throat, prosecutors said.

As Canelo bled out and became unconscious on a bathroom floor, prosecutors say Ramos-Corrales recorded a video of the puppy and posted it to Snapchat, making statements like “I’m cold-hearted,” and kicking the dying dog.
