A Dorchester man has been sentenced to six months in jail for neglecting his dog to the point where it had to be euthanized, prosecutors said Monday. Dana Thomson, 34, pleaded guilty in Dorchester District Court last week to two counts of cruelty to animals for failing to provide food or medical care to his dog, Braun. Judge Robert Baylor sentenced Thomson to six months in jail, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said. Staff at the MSPCA-Angell animal hospital said Braun was emaciated and had more than a dozen open wounds, according to prosecutors.
