A Sarasota judge sentenced a man accused of dousing a puppy with hot sauce to one year in county jail.

Ephrian Myles, 47, pleaded no contest to animal cruelty charges Thursday.

Judge Donna Berlin also ordered him to serve 18 months of probation and to complete an anger management course. She told Myles he is not to own a pet or live in a house where there are animals.

Police said Myles became annoyed with his girlfriend's 3-month-old dachshund-Chihuahua mix named Gizmo and poured hot sauce on the dog.

Authorities said the hot sauce got in the dog's eyes and throat. His girlfriend took the puppy to a nearby fire station, where the hot sauce was washed off.

The puppy was treated for neurological problems.
