FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The owner of a puppy set on fire earlier this month says the dog has been euthanized due to its extensive injuries.

The Fayetteville Observer (https://bit.ly/1Gm7bVP ) reports that Dominique Clark had her 7-month-old miniature terrier, Cocoa, euthanized Monday. On June 14, the puppy was set on fire and badly burned on her hind legs and belly. Authorities charged James Franklin Quick, Clark’s ex-boyfriend, with felony animal cruelty and burning personal property.

Clark received $3,000 in donations to pay for the puppy’s treatment after saying she didn’t have money to take Cocoa to urgent care. An animal control officer paid for Cocoa’s initial treatment at Cape Fear Animal Hospital. The puppy was later transferred to N.C. State University’s veterinary school for treatment.
