Puppy killed-Owner and Firefighter Nick Luiz Arrested

Nicholas Joseph Luiz dog thrown to ground and killed

Neighbors had heard crying multiple times but hadn’t suspected abuse until Tuesday Dec 29rd when they heard the puppy being beaten and presumed it to have died.

According to Thursday’s publication of San Jose Mercury News, a Santa Clara, California, firefighter was arrested on Wednesday for killing his German shepherd puppy. The five-month-old pup’s owner, identified as 32-year-old Nicholas Joseph Luiz of Napa, is now facing a felony animal cruelty charge.

According to a press release from the Napa Police Department, witnesses claim that Luiz had been abusing the puppy for several months. On the day that the pup died, witnesses reported seeing the puppy being abused in the backyard of Luiz’s Massa Drive home. Officers responded to Luiz’s residence late on December 29 and no one answered the door. The authorities came back on December 30 with a search warrant and found the puppy’s body inside of the home.

Luiz allegedly admitted to the Napa police that he had killed his puppy – investigators believe that the puppy was slammed to the ground several times before dying.

here are the facts from fugitive.com;

A Santa Clara firefighter is under arrest for suspicion of animal cruelty. Police officers found his 5-month-old German shepherd dead at his home. Authorities say this happened when a neighbor called 911 to report a puppy yelping next door and then silence. Police now say the dog was repeatedly slammed to the ground. What happened inside 32-year-old Nick Luiz’s house has shocked a quiet Napa neighborhood. “That evening by about 11:45 our dispatch center received a call that a neighbor who lived in the 1100 block of Messa Drive had been beating his dog and they believed it was deceased,” said Napa Police Captain Jeff Troendly. Luiz and his wife did not answer the door that night, so police waited outside. With a search warrant in hand, the next morning, the couple finally allowed police in. Authorities found the 5-month-old German shepherd dead in the laundry room wrapped in a plastic bag. Police officers were surprised to find out that he is a firefighter with the Santa Clara Fire Department.

  1. This evil monster!! Doesn’t need to be call fire fighter, putting in jail and his wife for not doing nothing to stop him for killing that poor puppy.

  2. I get what you’re saying. However…. She could have called 911 or answered the door when the police came the first time. Not waited until they showed up with the warrant. She had no excuse, not even the fact she might have been abused herself. What if that was her child he’d have done that too?

  4. What the f**k is wrong with the neighbors?! They witness the guy abusing a puppy, and, didn’t do a f**king thing?! I would have walked right into that guy’s house, and, beat him so bad with an axe handle, he’d never walk, or, eat solid food again.

  5. Why hasn’t the wife been arrested. She was there too. She could have tried to stop this. She did nothing but elude the police until they came back with a warrant. Go to the Santa Clara CA Fire Department face book page and demand this animal killer be fired. right now, he’s on paid leave pending an investigation. What is there to investigate, he admitted killing the poor puppy. He’s a prime example of who needs to be put on the FBI animal cruelty register that went into affect yesterday. Luiz wife needs to be right there with him.

  7. Oh my god , I am crying right now for this puppy,, that probably destroyed something in the house and they killed, the poor dog by abuse do not take a dog if you cannot tolerate what a puppy might do when we got our pit, he destroyed 2 fulton, beds we did not hurt him we put it on face book under bad dog rocky, you have to teach them with patience not to bite, touch, destroy stuff or don’t have a pet I’m glad they got them they should get what they deserve., think of how much beaten this poor dog got and how long for it to die, these are God’s aninals, remember Noah was told from God to save the animals , I would like to take my anger out on these guys
