Dog recovering after owner crops ears

Posted: Updated:
FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

A dog is recovering after her former owner had the animal's ears cropped.

According to the Florence Lauderdale Animal Shelter, a family member cropped Soleil's ears to make her look "more Pit."

Her ears got infected and she is in severe pain.

Donations are being taken to help cover her vet bills. Soleil is now in foster care.

The director of shelter said it's against the law to practice veterinarian medicine on your animals without proper training.

It's unclear if police will charge the dog's former owners with animal cruelty.
