RICHMOND, Texas – A Texas man is facing an animal cruelty charge after authorities said he shot a dog in the face.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, the Fort Bend County Constable’s Office said investigators arrested Timothy Holloway, 32, on a charge of third-degree felony cruelty to non-livestock animals in the incident, which occurred six months ago.

According to the Constable’s Office, authorities rescued the dog in December after he “was found abandoned at Harlem Park in a small wire kennel with a gunshot wound to the face.” Officials later named the dog Clarence.

The investigation eventually led authorities to Holloway, who admitted that he had shot the dog, the Facebook post said.

Today, Clarence continues to thrive, “although he suffers from sinus infections and other traumatic issues from the gunshot wound,” the Constable’s Office said. He is in training to become a therapy dog.
