Homer (WSYR-TV) – The Cortland County SPCA says a dog found in the town of Homer is extremely emaciated and one of its hind legs is so damaged it will need to be amputated.
The dog, which the agency named “Champ,” was found on Park Road in the rural community.
They say surgery on the dog will need to be delayed because of its poor health.
The SPCA estimates that the Rottweiler/German shepherd mix is 2 years old.
The SPCA’s law-enforcement department is investigating the case.
Anyone with information on the dog or how it was injured should call the department at (607) 753-9386.
Donations for Champ can be sent to Country Acres Animal Shelter, 5852 West Scott Rd., Homer, NY 13077 or through the shelter’s website
