do you know if anyone else has seen this. ?? If you have seen him kick this dog yourself, I would report it. If you can get another person who has witnessed this sort of thing as well , I would talk to them and see if they will back you up . Difficult thing to prove unless you have some good evidence.

That behavior is a crime in the state of New York and should be reported to the police. Period

I wholeheartedly agree with the above comments. Try to get another witness or some kind of evidence. Is there an SPCA or similar that would come investigate? If the dog's being abused physically, he's likely being abused or neglected in other ways too. That will show.
Poor dear.

You said he kicks and punches the dog. Have you seen that? If so, that is evidence. Several years ago I witnessed a man outside my house hitting his dog. I ran outside and engaged with him. He was a real you know what. He said the dog had run away from him and now that he caught him he was teaching him a lesson(???!!!???) I did not know where they lived but he knew where I lived and obviously he was a violent person. I should have followed a bit to find where they lived, then called the police but I didn't. I regret that SO MUCH. So anyway, thanks for letting me vent. Try and advocate for the dog. I know it's not easy.

Call and report it. I'm sure you aren't the only one who has seen this happen, but you may be the only one who will report it. Ask the authorities not to tell him that you were the one who reported it. Please stand up for this dog! I wouldn't be able to live with myself if this was me and I didn't do anything.
