A 27-year-old drug dealer who admitted to having sex with a dog will await her sentencing behind bars.

Jenna Louise Driscoll attended Brisbane District Court on Friday for sentencing after pleading guilty to bestiality and three drug-related charges in August.

But Driscoll's sentencing was reserved after a judge said bestiality acts were "repulsive and goes against order of nature", 9 News reported.

During a pre-sentence submission in court, defence lawyer James Godbolt said Driscoll had been publicly shamed and had sex with her dog at the request of her then partner who filmed the incident.

Judge Terry Martin remanded Driscoll - who also admitted to stabbing someone with a fork, biting a child and trafficking cannabis - in custody.

Earlier on Friday, she arrived in court alongside her lawyer, staring at the ground as she avoided making eye contact with the waiting media photographers.

The court appearance comes after police uncovered a video of Driscoll performing the obscene act while they were investigating unrelated offences in 2014.

The charges laid against Driscoll came when police had earlier carried out checks on her mobile phone for suspected drug trafficking.

Following her court appearance in October 2014, Driscoll was pictured arriving home accompanied by an unidentified man and a pet dog.

The dog, believed to be a pitbull terrier, climbed the stairs to Driscoll's cream coloured residence, where neighbours say she has lived for some time.

Driscoll entered her house and remained for a very short amount of time, before leaving with the man in the sedan.
