A Perth man has been banned from owning or being in contact with an animal for five years after he kept a Husky dog in a cage so small she couldn't raise her head.

Nan Zhao, 22, pleaded guilty in the Perth Magistrates Court to one count of causing a dog harm and was also fined $2000 for the offence.

When an RSPCA inspector found the 15-month-old old female named Lucky following a tip-off from the public, she could not move around and had no shelter from the weather in the cage, which was rusted shut and had to be broken so the dog could be removed.

Lucky remains in RSPCA care, but it is hoped she will be ready for adoption soon.
