A puppy kidnapped from a Warren home where its owners were charged with animal cruelty is recovering.
The six-month-old pit husky mix weighed 23 pounds when it was seized by humane officials during a search of 323 Prospect St., Warren, in late August. Officials said a healthy dog of this mix and that age would weigh between 40 and 45 pounds.
The animal was reportedly infested with parasites and “Obviously had never been to the vet or had injections” according to the police.
According to Karen Kolos, executive director of Humane Officer and Paws Along the River Humane Society, the dog has been confiscated and his health is improving.
The animal was brought to the Kinzua Veterinary Center for examination and is currently living and being cared for by the Humane Society.
“The dog is fine” said Kolos. “Paws employees see improvements every day.”
