BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – A Reiley Township man has been charged after law enforcement discovered an emaciated dog.

Starving Dog found in Butler County

Sheriff Richard K. Jones said 36-year-old David Neanover of Reiley Township was charged with cruelty to a companion animal after anonymous complaints came in about an emaciated dog. 

Jones said Butler County Sheriff’s Office Dog Wardens responded to the 6100 block of Main Street in Reiley Township and found the dog had no food or water, was covered in severe open wounds and obviously starved.

The dog was seized by the dog wardens and brought to the Humane Society where an exam was done on the animal.

The dog also has an ulcer on its tongue making it hard for the animal to eat or drink.

“No normal human being could look at this dog and think this is acceptable. The pictures are hard to view. It’s much worse in person. Animal Friends will do everything they can to save this poor animal, but the current condition is very bad. I am thankful that this was reported. I just hope he can be saved and adopted to someone who cares,” said Sheriff Jones.

The Butler County Sheriff encourages the public to continue to report these types of incidents.
