FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control is asking for your help finding out who left the body of a severely emaciated dog inside a dumpster at a local apartment complex.
Officials say the tri-colored pit bull mix was found in a dumpster Tuesday morning at Baldwin Creek Apartments at 2130 Hobson Road.
Officials say the dog looked similar to the dog in this stock photo.
FWACC's medical team examined the dog and determined it's between 6 to 12 months old.
They determined that, based on the condition of the body, it was kept inside a crate for long periods of time before it died.
Officers have talked to people at the apartment complex.
Anyone with information is asked to call FWACC at (260) 427-1244 during business hours or (260) 449-3000 after 8 p.m. and on weekends.
