R-Patz was just kidding around

“The story I told on Jimmy Kimmel last night seems to have spiraled out of control,” Robert Pattinson said in a statement. “What didn’t come across is that this was supposed to be a joke. No one at all expected or assumed that anything like that would happen on the "Good Time set.” He went on to say that all of them are animal lovers and would never do something to animals to harm them. The actor also explained that people involved in the movie are all professionals, gathered together to make a great film for everyone.

Robert Pattinson also expressed his embarrassment and said he was only trying to make Jimmy Kimmel laugh, which turned out to have created misunderstanding. However, he said that the scene with a dog didn’t make the movie’s final cut and might be available in the film’s DVD version.
