SPCA: Dog Found Inside Abandoned LI House Looked Like ‘Old Mop,’ Could Barely Walk

A dog is recovering after it was brought to a Long Island animal shelter in “horrible condition” last week, the Suffolk County SPCA said. A man found the Shih Tzu-type dog in an abandoned house in Lindenhurst and brought it to the Town of Babylon Animal Shelter on July 17, according to the organization. The dog was so matted and the nails so overgrown that the pooch could barely walk when it was brought to the shelter. CBS 2's Don Champion reports.
