Chihuahua named 'Hey Man' found dangling from Florida roof

Posted: Updated:

WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (WDRB) -- A Chihuahua named "Hey Man" is at the center of an animal abuse controversy in Florida. 

Police in Winter Garden, Florida say a  neighbor walking by a home recorded video of the dog dangling above the front porch.  The dog had on a harness and leash, which was nailed to the porch roof.  

Fox 35 in Orlando obtained a report from the Winter Garden Police Department that says an officer saw the dog about "two or three feet off the ground."  The owner tells the TV station that he was not hurting the pup. 

Orange County Animal Services started investigating and removed the 9-month-old dog from the owner on July 18. The shelter has filed for custody. 

"'Hey Man' is not available for adoption at this point, since he's part of an animal cruelty investigation.
