SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A Salem, Oregon, man was sentenced to 90 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to first-degree animal neglect for his role in the death of a starving Pomeranian named “Chewy.”

The Statesman Journal reports that 47-year-old James Arthur Craver Jr. admitted to failing to provide minimum care for the dog and was sentenced Monday.

He also pleaded guilty to DUI charges in a separate case.

Craver is prohibited from possessing a domestic animal for the next five years.
