DAPHNE -- Police charged a Fairhope couple with cruelty on Wednesday after
their Rottweiler was found with a deep gash around its neck from a collar
that was left unadjusted as the dog grew.

Joseph Smiley, 34, and Aleen Smiley, 33, were charged with second-degree
dog cruelty under the state's "Gucci" statute, named for a dog in Mobile
County that survived severe abuse. The misdemeanor offense carries a
maximum penalty of a year in jail.
