POLICE have arrested a young woman on animal cruelty charges after she allegedly taped her boyfriend's puppy Rex to their fridge following a domestic dispute.
Abby Toll, a 20-year-old university student from Boulder, Colorado, told police she was upset with her boyfriend for not getting rid of the dog, which had bitten her, CBS4denver.com reports.

Police also arrested her boyfriend, Bryan Beck after being called to attend a domestic disturbance.
The puppy, an eight-month-old Shiba Inu named Rex, is now under the care of a local humane society.
The Smoking Gun reports Toll used packing tape to completely encase his body and stick him upside down to the fridge.
His paws had been bound in elastic hair ties and he yelped in pain as officers worked to free him.
When the tape was removed, he lay motionless but breathing in his kennel until police transferred him to the animal shelter.
:I know this looks really bad, but the dog bites. He is aggressive," Toll reportedly said.
