MCLAUGHLIN, S.D. (AP) — An animal shelter operator says two dogs found in deplorable conditions in a McLaughlin rental home are so emaciated it’s hard to even tell their breed.
The male dogs were discovered Tuesday by a landlord. The former renters had moved out about a month earlier.
Mobridge shelter operator Tami Schanzenbach says that the dogs are believed to be 7-10 months old and are as much as 35 pounds underweight. They’re being slowly nursed back to health.
Schanzenbach says she’s in been in contact with Standing Rock Sioux tribal police and is pursuing charges against the owners.
