STROUDSBURG, Pa. -

A man in the Poconos is facing an animal-cruelty charge for allegedly shooting his pit bull in the head in 2012.

Kevin Brennan was charged Thursday.

The dog, named Ramona, actually survived the shooting.

Authorities say 47-year-old Kevin Brennan of Stroudsburg took the dog to a veterinary hospital and had her put down after firing a shot through the dog's head.

Officials say Brennan told them that the dog had behavioral issues and that he was having financial problems.
