Woman Finds Abandoned, Hogtied Dog Near Death

Police are trying to find the person who tied a dog to a pole and left her to die.

A woman called the Animal Welfare Society of Monroe, Pennsylvania, around 5 p.m. Saturday reporting she found a dog who was near death and hogtied to a pole in Pocono Country Place, Mount Pocono.

Police arrived at the scene and immediately took the dog, who officials believe is around four years old, to the veterinarian. The vet released the dog to AWSOM who named her "Baby Girl" and are helping with her recovery.

Officials say the dog has mange, a skin disease caused by parasitic mites, and swollen feet due to being tied up.
