Subject:Public’s Assistance Needed in Identifying Abandoned Dog
On Thursday February 28, 2019, at approximately 12:30 PM, the Suffield Police Department received a report that a small dog was tied up on a trail in Stony Brook Park located on South Street in Suffield. An Animal Control Officer was immediately dispatched to respond.
Upon arrival, the Animal Control Officer located a small older canine, possibly a Terrier breed, that was tied to a tree by a leash. This leash was wrapped around one of the dog’s legs tightly, appearing to impact the dog’s circulation. Other visible signs of neglect and suspected abuse were a severe matting of the dog’s fur, missing portions of fur from the dog’s tail, and a tumor present on one of the dog’s rear legs. Icicles were visible hanging from the dog’s fur and the Animal Control officer noted what appeared to be signs of significant neglect of the dog’s dental care.
Suffield Animal Control transported this injured canine to a local area animal hospital for medical care and evaluation.
Preliminary estimates are that this dog was left exposed to the weather and elements for approximately one day.
Suffield Animal Control and Suffield Police take animal neglect and abuse very seriously.An investigation has initiated by Suffield Animal Control.A request for the public’s assistance in identifying this dog was posted on the Suffield Animal Control Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SuffieldAnimalControl/
