Police Search for Man Who Stabbed Dog Multiple Times in Hialeah

A man was caught on camera stabbing a dog multiple times at a Hialeah home.

A dog named Zoe is recovering after a man stabbed her multiple times in Hialeah, said the dog's owner.

Surveillance video shows the man stab the barking dog repeatedly after he jumped the fence at the owner's home on the 4200 block of East 8th Lane.

Zoe kept barking at the stranger even though she was wounded.

The dog's owner saw what happened and tried to stop the man.

"I see him reach into his waistband and pull something out and he stabbed her," Lisette Gonzalez said. "The dog chases after him and I come outside and I tell him, 'What did you do...' and I see that she has a knife sticking from her side."

Now Zoe has six stitches and had to undergo surgery to repair the muscles that were damaged by the knife.

Meanwhile, police are looking for the dog's attacker. Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
