A WOMAN who neglected and hit her dogs has been sentenced to 150 hours of community service and banned from keeping dogs for a decade.

Cherelle Bromfield of Claremont Street, Greenwich, was sentenced last Friday at Greenwich Magistrates Court after pleading guilty last June to beating her dog Scarlet but not guilty to neglecting her other dog Amber.

She was found guilty in her absence last November.

Bromfield was reported to the police when she was seen hitting Scarlet last March. Amber was thin, had sores on her body and some of her hair had fallen out.

Both dogs were treated by a vet and improved, but Amber had to be put to sleep on veterinary advice because of neurological problems.

Bromfield cannot appeal for five years. She was also asked to pay £500 costs and £600 vets' fees were returned to the RSPCA.

There was also a deprivation order on Scarlet.
