A woman who threatened to kill her ex has been jailed for messaging her former partner's dog on Facebook.
Paula Higham, 38, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court after contacting her ex, breaching a non-molestation order imposed in August 2021.
Contacting her ex's dog on Facebook saw the 38-year-old in breach of the order, with Higham also said to have issued threats directly towards her ex partner Mark Davies, who she threatened to kill, LiverpoolEcho reported.

The 38-year-old also issued threats against her ex's mum, saying that she "will be looking worse" soon after her "rough".
In August 2021, recorder Tim Harrington handed Higham a one-year imprisonment suspended for 18 months, which she was in "persistent breach" of after sending a series of "deeply unpleasant" messages.
With 13 emails sent from two different accounts just a week after the non-molestation order took effect, Higham had also messaged a Facebook account set up for Davies' dog.
Said account received a series of harsh messages from Higham, including one message that read: "What's happened to your mum? She's looking very rough. She will be looking worse soon."
Another message read: "Enjoy your weekend. I've posted your name and address over the internet, rapist."

A series of calls from Higham to her ex were also made, with one call saying "I'm going to kill you, I'm going to kill you" among others that accused Davies of raping her.
Zara Baqri, prosecuting, said that Higham was an "increased risk" to probation staff due to her alcohol abuse, and had acted aggressively toward staff.
Oliver Saddington, defending, said: "She apologises through me for these breaches. Truth be told, she is still feeling scared and suffers with her mental health today."
Recorder Eric Lamb, in sentencing, activated the 12 month suspended sentence but reduced it to eight, where during sentencing Higham sobbed and asked the judge: "are you saying I am going to lose my house?".
