Life pet ban on cruel dog man.

Cruel William Doyle has been banned for life from keeping dogs after a sheriff heard that he ill-treated two Pomeranian pups.

Police and SSPCA inspectors had to hold their noses when they broke in to rescue the animals from his filthy, stinking home.

There was no food or clean water available for the dogs, and they were so thin that their bones could be felt through the skin.

When Doyle, 34, finally returned to the house in Chapelton Drive, Polbeth, West Lothian, he brought dinner for himself and the dogs - two chocolate bars and a tin of cat food.

Doyle, who was said by his solicitor Stuart Peebles, to be suffering from depression, admitted ill-treating the animals.

Sheriff Rosie Morrison: "It is awful to think of these dogs in that state. Poor little things.

"Pomeranians are not terribly strong dogs. I will have to ban you from keeping dogs for the rest of your life."
