Yesterday, this pit bull terrier showed up in the backyard of a Bower Hill Road residence. The malnourished dog was taken to animal control and is being examined by a veterinarian because it showed signs of abuse.
It’s a mystery how the dog there, according to the resident, Jason Anderson. On Facebook, he pointed out that his entire back yard is fenced in, and healthy neighborhood dogs have tried — and failed — to jump over it.
It is equally as confusing to consider that … someone would have any reason to have ditched him in our yard instead of just taking him to the humane society or somewhere for help.
Some Facebook commenters thought that the dog might be the same animal shown on this poster:
But the dog found in Bridgeville is a male. If you have information about the Bower Hill Road dog, you should contact Animal Control Services at: 724-746-4344.
Even if an owner doesn’t come forth, it seems like things will improve for the found dog. On Facebook, Anderson wrote:
We will be watching to see how our little buddy turns the corner, and if he did actually make that jump that dog has one hell of a fight in him so there is no doubt he will recover strong. So NO chance that he gets put down, he jumped the right fence and has a bright future, we will be tracking his recovery!
