A 23-year-old man was arrested on Thursday after authorities said he beat a 5-month-old goldendoodle, which lead to the dog’s death.

Robert William Garon is facing a charge of cruelty to animals. Authorities say this is the second dog in five months to die in his care.

A judge set bail for Garon at $150,000 during a first appearance hearing on Friday afternoon. Garon’s attorneys asked for $10,000. Garon has also been ordered not to have any pets or contact witnesses.
