A pet sitter has been caught throwing a puppy to the ground in sickening footage.

The woman, who has not been named, had been hired to watch little Labrador puppy Lucy while her owner Amanda Roy and her husband were at work.

But the couple, from Victorville, California, were horrified with what they saw after they received a motion alert from their home security on their phone.

The young woman is seen holding the puppy in the air as she walks into the kitchen and throws the little animal to the ground.

The puppy lays stunned for a few seconds before it struggles to get up and walk but is only able to stumble a few steps.

The sitter was caught on a home security system

Lucy’s owner Amanda Roy said it was heartbreaking seeing the footage

 

Amanda’s husband – who has also not been named – was able to speak to the sitter through the home security system and told her to get out.

The couple say she apologised for her actions and then left.

Amanda told ABC7 : “It’s heartbreaking because the reason we use a pet sitter is because we love our pet and we don’t want to leave her unattended for very long because she is a baby.

“So we trusted someone to come into our home and look after a pet that we consider a family member.”

Amanda said Lucy was checked over by a vet and had not suffered any injuries.

Rover app, which Amanda contacted the sitter through, confirmed they have banned her from using them.

A spokesperson for the company said: “The activity depicted in this video is shocking and appalling. We have permanently deactivated this sitter from our platform and will continue to investigate.
