WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Officials are trying to find the owner of a dog that was found abandoned at a school in New Jersey and had its ears cut off.
The Cane Corso was found tied to a door at School No. 9 in Port Reading on Tuesday.
The dog was taken to the Woodbridge Animal Shelter where he is being treated by a veterinarian. The shelter said the dog’s ears were cut “completely flush with his head.”
“The ear cropping that had been done was not done by a vet,” Heather Campione, manager of the Woodbridge shelter, told 1010 WINS.
The male dog is black with a white star in its chest.
