A 25-year-old man has been given a 18-week jail sentence after leaving his dogs to starve on a balcony of a Bristol flat.
Zach Wood admitted to causing unnecessary suffering and failing to meet the needs of animals in his care.
He was also banned from keeping animals for life.
Cook's dogs, Ruby and Blacky, were discovered on the balcony of a flat in Beaufort House, Strawbridge Road in Bristol, after concerned neighbours contacted police about a stench coming from the property.
The dogs were found confined to a dirty balcony area covered in faeces and urine.
Both dogs had to be put to sleep by a vet.
Zach Cook, who is already serving six years and two months in prison for unrelated matters, was sentenced at Bristol Magistrates Court on Wednesday, 9 August. He will serve the time concurrently.
