Miami man says dog burned by fireworks on July 4th, asks people to be careful

MIAMI – Cedric Washington said he’s glad his 3-year-old dog ‘Bel Air’ is alive because he knows things could have been a lot worse for his beloved pup.

Washington said Bel Air was injured by another person’s fireworks outside his home in the Northwest 43rd Street and 10th Avenue area of ​​Miami.

“He was bleeding from the mouth, was drooling, his mouth was very swollen and his neck was burned,” Washington said. “I’m going to inspect my dog ​​and I smell burns. And I’m like oh my god So I go straight to the yard. And I look around the yard and see like a Roman candle and in the yard a picture of a smoke bomb lying in the yard and a pack of firecrackers.

Washington took Bel Air to the ASPCA clinic in northwest Miami-Dade, where veterinarians injected his dog with antibiotics and a pain reliever.

“Last night I actually called and made a police report,” Washington said. “They couldn’t help me.”


Washington is now asking people to think of Bel Air as they set off fireworks next Independence Day.

“I don’t care if you throw fireworks, but don’t throw them in my yard for my dogs to get hurt,” he said.

Bel Air is expected to make a full recovery, Washington said.
