A dog owner from New York is now facing charges after he let his doggo starve and for not treating its injuries. Allegedly, the dog even ate her own leg while it was left chained in a crate outside their yard because it was injured.
– A dog was left outside by its owner.
– It was chained to a crate and had no food.
– The dog even had to eat her own leg because…
The dog owner, identified as 59-year-old Carl Pritchard, was charged with cruelty and failure to provide food and shelter. A UPS worker was the one who reported to authorities about the doggo, a German Shepherd named Zoe. The UPS worker noted that it seemed like the dog’s leg was blown off. It turns out, however, that the nine-year-old doggo chewed off her front leg. The dog was also found with a dog bowl near it but there was no food as it was covered in snow.
Zoe was then taken to Oneonta Veterinary Clinic and the dog was very emaciated as determined by the vets. The dog is believed to have had an injured leg so she tried to take care of it on her own. The doggo was later taken to Cornell University veterinary school for more treatment.
There is no further update about the condition of the doggo.
