SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 24 (UPI) -- A Chihuahua puppy in Sarasota, Fla., was recovering and a man faces animal cruelty charges for allegedly dousing it in hot sauce, authorities said.

The dog's owner, who was not identified in the report, brought Gizmo to a nearby fire station for help after learning what happened to him.

Myles was arrested and charged with felony aggravated animal cruelty. He was being held in the Sarasota County jail on a $5,000 bond.

The dog was taken to Animal Services and was expected to be OK.
