Washington - An Alabama parole board on Tuesday refused to grant conditional release to a man serving a seven-year prison sentence for setting his pit bull dog on fire and beating him with a shovel, the board said.

The eight-year old dog, named Louis Vuitton, has fully recovered from his 2007 ordeal and was present at the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles hearing as a material witness against his former owner, Juan Daniels, 26.

Daniels lit the animal on fire with lighter fluid in the 2007 attack.

The next parole hearing for Daniels will come no sooner than July 2012.
