The Animal Action League described the dog as “very sweet and loving." The group is asking for donations for his medical care. The dog was dehydrated and will need slow, small meals over a long period of time because feeding him too quickly could be dangerous. It will likely be months before he is eligible for adoption.

The case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.
