San Gabriel Valley animal shelter asking public's help in identifying severely abused dog

Animal Control officers from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society are asking for the public’s help in identifying a severely abused dog that was dropped off at the shelter on Sunday. His photo is below. Just a warning, it may be disturbing to some.

A male terrier mix was transported to the SGVHS after someone found the animal at Marshall Street and San Gabriel Boulevard in San Gabriel. The dog was severely malnourished due to a rubber band around his snout that caused deep lacerations and stopped him from eating or drinking, according to the SGVHS. He is being treated at the shelter.

The dog has long black hair with a small white blaze on the chest, according to the shelter. He is not neutered and does not have a microchip. He was wearing a blue collar with rhinestones. Anyone with information about the dog or its owner is asked to call Doreen Hudson of the SGVHS at (818) 378 0607.
