Public’s help sought finding owner of injured Boston pit bull
A stray dog with several injuries was found rummaging through trash bins in Dorchester early Monday morning and now officials are asking for the public’s help locating the pup’s owner.
Boston Animal Control says they responded to the area of Callender Street in Dorchester around 3:15 a.m. on March 27 for a report of a 1-to-2-year-old pit bull mix rooting around a few trash barrels in front of a residence. Boston Police were called to the scene and confirmed the resident who lived at the address was not the dog’s owner.
The dog was transported to Angell Animal Medical Center where veterinarians found multiple gashes on the pup’s face. Investigators say the nature of these injuries is unclear and the pit bull is recovering at the adoption center.
Anyone with information about the dog or her owner is asked to contact MSPCA Law Enforcement at 800-628-5808.
“At this point we have more questions than answers and we’re eager to speak to whomever owns this dog or who may know who owns this dog, so we can determine next steps — returning this dog to her rightful home or placing her for adoption,” said Mike Keiley, Director of Adoption Centers and Programs at the MSPCA-Angell.
