"She was recently seen walking down a business district in Fairfield and she apparently had the dog by the tail and she was swinging it around," said Ramirez.
The video was shot in Fairfield, California on a street in front of a home. The woman living there, Candy Seward, said her roommate is Chin's boyfriend.
She also said the pug is named Ben and was hurt in a heated argument between the couple. Seward says she and others in the video wanted to take Ben from Chin, but she stormed off with the pug before anyone could.
Seward agrees Ben needs to be taken from her.
"I think that she should be punished and maybe someone should talk to her about animal cruelty," she said.
Ramirez believes Chin is hiding in the Vallejo area and hopes people who know where she and Ben are will help end the dog's torture.
