A four pound Chihuahua is now on the mend after police say she was thrown against a Starbucks window.
Witnesses feared the dog would not survive after watching the impact Tuesday night around 9:30 p.m.
The man accused of the cold crime is now charged with animal cruelty.
Larry McHale was arrested outside the Starbucks at 8821 Westheimer after employees called 9-1-1.
Police aren’t even sure if the dog even belongs to him.
“It was so loud, the window sounded like it was going to break,” said Starbucks manager Jasmine Hyder. “He’s like, you don’t care about humans. You only care about a dog.”
Starbucks manager Jasmine Hyder said McHale has been banned from the southwest Houston Starbucks for the last three months.
“He harasses customers every time. He comes in and starts chaos,” explained Hyder.
It’s unclear what prompted McHale to throw the dog against the window.
According to witnesses, he was yelling and smashed a bottle on the ground before the incident.
“It’s an innocent dog, and you sabotaged the dog’s life for no reason,” added Hyder.
The dog was picked up by the city of Houston’s Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility.
