Zeus, the puppy who is at the center of an animal abuse case in Brockport, has a new home. News 8 learned the new details Friday during a court hearing for the man accused of beating Zeus.
Ryan Ainsworth is charged with torturing and injuring an animal, a misdemeanor. He has been fighting to regain custody of his dog. Ainsworth was arrested in December, 2016.
Witnesses say he repeatedly hit Zeus with a closed fist. Zeus has recovered from his injuries.
Ainsworth’s lawyer says he is waiting for the dog’s medical records. A new hearing has been scheduled for June 9.
