Henderson County, NC (WLOS) -- A Henderson County man is facing felony animal cruelty charges after police found an extremely malnourished dog tied up on his yard when responding to the home on a non-related issue.
On January 15, 2019, deputies noticed the severely underweight and emaciated Doberman Pincher tied to a tree in the front yard of Christopher Hall.
Animal Enforcement deputies were immediately called to the residence.
Hall, 37, of Mills River, has been charged with one felony count of Cruelty to Animals, and one misdemeanor count of Child Abuse based upon the conditions of the home where a minor child was living on January 16th.

The canine has been relinquished to the Henderson County Animal Shelter for adoption and has responded extremely well to treatment and veterinary care.
