A 26-year-old North Kentville man was arrested on June 6 for causing suffering to a puppy.
Police received a call from a neighbour at 10:16 p.m. about someone beating a dog with a board.
The animal was injured.
The male will appear in court on Sept. 2 on a charge under the Criminal Code. He had been reported earlier this spring as a result of another incident where the puppy was kicked.
