May 17, 2019 GMT

Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is asking the public to help find people responsible for mistreating a dog found April 2 on Decatur Road. 

The dog was found emaciated after Animal Care & Control received a tip there was a stray dog in the 7900 block of Decatur Road, Holly Pasquinelli, community relations and education specialist at Animal Care & Control, said Thursday. 

Officers searched the area for an owner but were not able to find one, Pasquinelli said. The pit bull mix had to be euthanized because he had such severe medical issues, she said. This is one of several cases the organization is investigating and will feature every Thursday on Animal Care & Control’s website, Pasquinelli said.
