Abused Dog Ready for Adoption

Tangled in a frayed, metal cable, and near death; that's how Washington Police found an abused dog in Havens Gardens in Washington. The dog was near death and had barely enough energy to look at his rescuer. A length of frayed cable was wrapped around one of the dog's hind legs, completely cutting off his circulation. The leg had to be amputated. But after months of love and care, the dog, named Lawrence Leonard, is ready for adoption. For more information, contact the Pamlico Animal Hospital at 946-2834.
