SARASOTA, Fla. (PBP) -- A man from Sarasota faces felony animal cruelty charges after he allegedly poured hot sauce over a 3-month-old puppy.

According to a police report released Sunday, the man's girlfriend took the Dachshund/Chihuahua mix to a nearby fire department for help.

The puppy's eyes were swollen shut and it was having trouble breathing before rescuers washed the hot sauce off and helped to revive it.

The girlfriend told investigators that the puppy, named Gizmo, has history of seizures and that the man became irate when Gizmo started yelping while having a seizure.

Gizmo is expected to make a full recovery.
