Chihuahua Recovers after Being Thrown against Starbucks Window

“Why would you do this to a little dog? This dog never hurt anyone, but we’re going to save her no matter what.”

On October 21, 2014, a 4-pound Chihuahua was thrown against a Starbucks window by an enraged Houston man. The individual had been banned from entering the coffee shop and took his anger out on the dog. The tiny pup suffered a broken back leg and needs pins and plates to fix it, but thanks to Frisky Paws Rescue, the dog is now on the mend.

Larry McHale, the animal abuser, was arrested immediately after the incident and he was charged with animal cruelty.

According to area police, the abuse happened around 9:30 p.m. outside the Starbucks located at 8821 Westheimer in Houston. Employees called authorities and thanks to them the little dog was saved.

“It was so loud, the window sounded like it was going to break,” said Starbucks manager Jasmine Hyder. “He’s like, you don’t care about humans. You only care about a dog.”

Hyder said she had banned McHale from the coffee shop because he harasses customers whenever he is there. McHale had been banned for the past three months.

No one knows for sure if the little dog, dubbed Starbucks, belongs to McHale or why the man threw the pet against the glass, but animal lovers are making sure the animal abuser never lays a hand on the small pet again.

“Starbucks” was picked up by the city of Houston’s Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility and later Frisky Paws Rescue stepped in to save the dog. The organization is trying to raise $1,000 to fix the Chihuahua’s broken leg.

“Why would you do this to a little dog? This dog never hurt anyone, but we’re going to save her no matter what he did,” said Nela Brown with Frisky Paws Rescue.

If you would like to help Starbucks, consider making a donation to Frisky Paws Rescue at http://www.friskypawsrescue.org/ and help the organization pay for the dog’s surgery. Starbucks will also need a forever home once she is healed.

  1. What’s wrong with people… I can’t fathom why someone would ever think that was okay to do. No animal ever deserves such poor treatment. I don’t care if he did it because the dog bit him or something… there’s never an excuse.

  2. Well as long there is so many people in US and lack of help for them no wonder they do things like this… You people think This is Awful and just other side of the oceans are way worse things going on….

  3. Name and shame ASAP. My chihuahua lived for a happy 21 years and 4 months. This wee soul now suffers whilst the vile swine will get community service if that. Give him to me for five minutes.

  4. Hope the jerk who did that rots in jail or hell! Good thing I wasn’t there because I would have thrown HIM through the window!

    1. If u think this is ok, why the hell are you here. A pet becomes like your family.
      We here in AMERICA have love and respect for our pet’s and all others live’s.
      If you don’t care about our animals, get the hell out of America and take your careless ass back where you migrated from. Animals are Gods creatures and they feel pain just as you or I do.

  5. Poor baby girl….so glad it wasn’t much worse and she’s is recovering. I think I would’ve shot the bastard if I saw that sh&t.

  6. well, i don’t live in Texas, so someone else is going to have to find him then throw him against a wall, over and over again and see how he likes it. Pieces of shit like this deserve whatever they did to be done to them back. I think a lot of crimes would go down if this happened.

  7. Another asshole…f*ck…the world is full of them. One day, if not now in the after life, all these animal abusing pricks will pay!!!

  8. “…but ‘animal lovers’ are making sure the animal abuser never lays a hand on the small pet again.” — Sometimes I wish media wouldn’t always refer to people who respect animals as “animal lovers.” You don’t have to love animals to do the right thing.

  9. He is obviously mentally ill and raged out. No excuse of course for harming the little dog. I think it is a sad story for all involved.

  10. Larry McHale, we will remember this piece of shit name.
    He will not like what , we have in store for him

  11. WHEN IN THE NAMES OF GOD!!! WILL WE ALL STAND UP AND SAY NO MORE ABUSE TO ANY AND ALL ANIMALS! !!!!
    POLICE , GOVERMENT , ALL THE BIG SHOTS WHO HAVE THE MEANS TO CHANGE THE PUNISHMENTS AND ENFORCE THE LAWS!!!
    WAKE UP! !!
    THIS IS WHERE THESE INHUMANE ASSHOLES START! !THEN MO ONTO PEOPLE AND COUNTRIES! !! ENOUGH ENOUGH ENOUGH!!!
    MAKE A CHOSE!! TAKE A STAND!!!!

  12. I hope someone called the police and now he’s in jail. HORRIBLE THING TO DO!!!! Damn it! When is this going to stop!!!

  13. Disgusting! I hope that piece of shit gets what’s coming to him! ~~ Poor little fur baby….best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  14. Ugh. This makes me so mad and so sad. these animals deserve nothing but love. How can people be so cruel?

  15. We should let Texas secede, and build a bridge over it for Mexicans to still be able to enter the country. I’ll take illegal immigrants over Texans any day of the week.

  16. Well Starbucks employees aren’t going to have that! It seems like they would be the type to be animal lovers.

  17. WTF???? Boy I’m hoping some proper cowboy sees this , knows this rotten pile of cowdung and teaches by example…..

  18. I love, and feel exactly the same on all of these responses…so if we all feel this way, WHY are there still people like this?? Arghhh…my guess is because the dumb shits can’t read…

  19. What an asshole!! Anyone who would make such foolish mistakes of the like should be banished from the public, locked up in prison. 🙂
