SALEM, Ore. - Deputies say a 20-year-old Oregon man was preparing to heat his enchilada lunch in a 350-degree oven, but when his grandmother's dog nipped him, the animal went in instead.
Kevin Dean Parrish of Lyons, southeast of Salem, was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of first-degree aggravated animal abuse, Marion County sheriff's spokesman Don Thomson said.
Parrish's bail was increased to $100,000, from $10,000. His next court appearance is scheduled Jan. 30.
The dog, a Chihuahua-miniature pincher mix named Kudo, was cut and bruised, his hair was singed and three of his legs were burned, Thomson said.
The 6-year-old dog had difficulty standing but was expected to pull through.
