This shocking footage captures the moment a cruel dog owner dragged a tiny puppy on its stomach across the sidewalk.

The RSPCA is urgently trying to trace the man filmed yanking at the tiny pooch as it appeared to be attempting to lay down on the path in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

At some point, it appears as if the dog refuses to move and is eventually lifted off the ground by its leash.

The man, wearing a gray T-shirt, dark shorts, black socks and Nike trainers, continues to drag the pup down Duncalf Street in Burslem while the animal lies sprawled on the pavement.

Lillie Dowling, who filmed the incident, can be heard in the background saying: “What the hell, what the hell?

“Is that a damn joke? What the hell? Oh my god, I have to get out of the car.”

Sharing the video on Facebook, she wrote: “Just saw someone drag their dog up the embankment.

“I tried to film as much as possible. If anyone knows this man, could you please report him or let someone know the dog is fine?

“I called out my car window to tell him to pick up the dog but he literally told me to fuck off.”

Among a number of comments from people who were horrified by the incident was one who said: “It makes me sick to see this poor dog. What a disgusting person.”

Staffordshire Police confirmed they had been made aware of footage of a man being “cruel to a dog” and passed it on to the RSPCA, which is conducting an investigation.

The charity has urged anyone with information to call 0300 1234 999.
