Dog owner arrested for filing dog’s teeth down and beating dog for chewing wire fencing

Chris Barnett of McMinnville, Tennesee has been arrested and charged with felony charges of aggravated animal cruelty. He filed his dog's teeth down, to the gumline. A witness to the beatings, called the police and Barnett was arrested.

"He had 16 uppers and 14 lowers that have been ground all the way down. The root and nerve are exposed and bleeding," Warren County Humane Society President Andy Anderson said.

Last week, Anderson said she received a call from a man who said he saw Lucas' owner, Chris Barnett, beating the dog.
Anderson said Lucas' eyes were blood shot, and x-rays showed that he suffered a fracture to his face.

"This bone that goes around his eye is fractured," Anderson said.

Anyone who would like to help can send donations to:
Sparta Road Veterinary Clinic
4021 Sparta Hwy.
McMinnville, TN 37110

Donators are asked to specify that they want their donations to be used for Lucas' medical expenses.
