MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - It was one of the most high profile animal abuse cases in Alabama. Now the story of Louis Vuitton, the pit-bull that was beaten and burned by his owner, is getting national attention again.

It's been almost three full years and Dee Hartley has loved, cared for and been a mother to Louis Vuitton since he was beaten and burned.

Juan Daniels, who was convicted of beating and burning the dog, is coming up for parole next week. The mission now is to keep Juan Daniels in prison.

Sentenced to nine and a half years in prison, Daniels has served less than two.

Former Animal Cruelty Investigator Matt Cooper and Mrs. Hartley have been drumming up support from around the world to convince the parole board that it's not time for Daniels to be released.

The internet has connected thousands of people in support of Louis and against Juan Daniels' parole.

That's just the message that Cooper and Hartley hope the parole board will hear next week. 

Juan Daniel's parole hearing is set for Tuesday morning. WSFA 12 News will be there to let you know how it turns out.
