Dog Dies After Owner Intentionally Set Her On Fire

Posted: Updated:

A dog that was doused with gasoline and intentionally set on fire by her owner almost two weeks ago has died.

Officials at Pima Animal Care Center in Tuscon said the Chihuahua mix named Lovely went into cardiac arrest and died Sunday.

The dog only about a 50% chance of surviving her injuries.

“We are only comforted by the fact that she died knowing she was loved, not just by all of us but by the thousands of people who sent in donations, messages of love and support and who were rooting for our sweet girl. There are no words to describe how we all feel today or how humbled and grateful we are to our community who showed an unbelievable amount of love and care for this little dog,” the animal care center said in a Facebook post.

Tucson police arrested 39-year-old Dean Sherfield Finley on May 7.
