A dog owner from Ohio intentionally taped the dog’s muzzle and told authorities that the doggo was found with a slit throat. It was later determined, however, that the person who claimed to have found the doggo is the real owner and faked the story in order to get free medical assistance.
– A dog owner claimed he or she saw a doggo whose snout was taped shut and with a slit throat.
– It was determined that the same person is actually the dog owner and lied about the doggo.
– The dog owner wanted to get free medical assistance.
The dog slit its throat on a barbed wire and the dog owner could not afford to take the dog to a vet. Sheriff Richard Jones said that the dog also had an injured snout area because of being muzzled for several hours a day so that it would not chew items at home.
It is unclear when the dog will be up for adoption. It is also unknown if the dog owner will face charges because of creating a story in order to get free assistance as well as injuring the doggo by putting a muzzle on it.
