Cody, a collie dog owned by the Agnew family, was doused in a flammable liquid and set alight at her Maghaberry home on Sunday, 26 August.
At first, the family vet was not sure if the dog would survive the ordeal - but the beloved pet is making progress with the help of strong pain relief.
The arrested man is currently assisting police with their enquiries.
