Depraved dog-sitter, 37, forced friend's Rottweiler to perform sex act on him while looking after the animal

A VILE pervert who sexually abused a friend's dog while looking after the animal has been jailed for 30 months.

Depraved Andrew Flanagan, 37, from Oxford, was caught after he photographed the sick abuse in which he forced a Rottweiller to engage in a sex act with him.

When police raided his home in September 2018, they discovered a haul of incident images of children and animals being sexually abused.

Four pictures were found showing Flanagan himself engaging in a sex act with the dog he had been looking after for a pal, the Oxford Mail reported.

Of the banned images of children, police uncovered a total of 287 images in category A, the most severe category, 103 in category B and 125 in category C.

Oxford Crown Court heard Flanagan had also sent sick pictures to others.

Search terms also revealed deliberate hunting for indecent images, including terms such as "pre-teen hardcore" and searches for five-year-old children.

James Reilley, defending, said Flanagan suffered with "extreme and severe depression and anxiety" and was taking medication for a diagnosis of HIV.

He said Flanagan had experienced "bouts of suicidal thoughts as a result" and described him as "a good man" who had committed the "out of character" offence at his "lowest ebb".

Mr Reilley added that Flanagan was "clearly extremely sick" and was "terrified" at the prospect of going to prison.

Sentencing, Judge Nigel Daly said: "The possession of indecent images of children, you know because you are not an unintelligent man, that before these images can exist there has to be a child.

"And that child has to be assaulted and that child very often is in extreme distress.

"These images will never go away and they will be there for as long as we have got the internet available."

Flanagan sobbed as he was jailed for 30 months.

He will also have to sign the sex offenders register for life.
