A Red Springs, North Carolina, man accused of setting a puppy on fire had his bail raised from $40,000 to $250,000 on Tuesday after he argued with the judge presiding over the case.

James Franklin Quick, 23, is being charged with severely burning a 7-month-old miniature terrier named Cocoa and is being charged with felony animal cruelty. WTVD News reports that Quick chose to defend himself in court on Tuesday after being warned by the judge not to do so.

According to WRAL News, Fayetteville resident Dominique Clark had let the dog into the backyard on Sunday night and then heard the dog scratching to be let back in. When she opened the door, the dog was on fire, and she had to smother the flames with her clothes.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Titus, an 8-year-old St. Bernard currently residing at The Humane Society of New York in Manhattan.

Though this sweet pup – whose story came to us via the Mayor's Alliance for N.Y.C.'s Animals – grew up in a rural area, when his owner became ill and was no longer able to care for him, he ended up in the Big Apple. The 101-lb. pup is still adjusting to the change, but he really wants to return to country living.
