The Pomeranian was found at the back of a home in the small southeast Florida city of Pembroke Pines, police said in a statement. The Pembroke Pines Police Department said the dog-beating appeared to be an isolated incident and there was no evidence to suggest other animals in the area were in danger. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper reported that the dog, named Foxx, scampered down the stairs of the family’s condo on Friday evening to relieve itself on the lawn behind their building, but did not return.
