Anthony Ortolani pleaded guilty to a charge of animal cruelty in October. He was sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation and 30 hours of community service.
He admitted leaving his dog on Mount Bierstadt in August after first trying to carry the injured dog down in bad weather.
Missy was eventually rescued after eight days on the mountain. She was also renamed "Lucky" by her new owner.
