UPDATE on 21-year-old ALEX JAMES CARR (pictured below), who shot his 3-year-old German shepherd for “chewing on his babies’ toys and clothes.”
WWMT reports that after pleading guilty to several animal cruelty charges, ALEX CARR was sentenced on Monday, March 8, 2021.
CARR was sentenced to three months incarceration and probation.
In January he had pleaded guilty to one count of attempted torturing, mutilating or killing an animal, which is a two-year high-court misdemeanor, and one count of animal cruelty.
As reported by WWMT, as part of his punishment, CARR would have to undergo psychological evaluation, and anger management programming.
The circuit court judge also ordered that CARR would no longer be allowed to have any pets and any animals remaining in the defendant’s care were to be removed.
This filthy individual was further ordered to pay $4,300 in restitution to Animal Aid of Branch County for taking care of the furbaby.
The amazing survivor, now renamed Janey, has since been adopted by a couple from Indiana and is doing well.
Her new dad is a Ft. Wayne Police Officer.

How many times have we read about innocent animals who have been shot and left to die?
Sometimes they are found in time to be saved, and sadly, too often they are found when it’s too late.
In this story, not only the 3-year-old victim survived, but she made her own way to a safe place.
In early June, the beautiful German shepherd in the pictures, after being shot, managed to walk for half a mile ending up in the yard of ‘Stray Farm.’
The owner of ‘Stray Farm’ is Mrs. Sally Geer who is also the president of the Coldwater-based shelter ‘Animal Aid of Branch County’.
Sally told Wood TV that her husband Wayne saw the furbaby: “…stagger into the end of our driveway and her head was very tilted, and he knew that wasn’t right.”
The dog was taken to the vet where it was determined that she had been shot in the head, and, the bullet was still lodged in her skull.
Sally said that the poor dog had been shot three days earlier.
While filling out paperwork, the vet put down as a name for the dog ‘Jane Doe’, but Wayne rightfully said: “No, she took a bullet and managed to survive it, so she’s G.I. Jane.”
Sally said: “She’s just an amazing dog. She was just left laying on a tarp and then she decided she wasn’t going to die there, so she found her way here.”
Thankfully G.I. Jane continued to recover, and the Branch County Sheriff’s Office opened an investigation into the shooting.
Well, no surprise here.
Court documents show that G.I. Jane’s guardian, 21-year-old ALEX CARR, shot her because she was “chewing on his babies’ toys and clothes.”
ALEX CARR is accused of leaving the dog for dead and now faces a four-year felony charge of animal cruelty.
This monster is expected to be arraigned on August 17.
