Dog seized from home ‘doing well’

A puppy seized from a Warren home where its owners have been charged with cruelty to animals is regaining its health.

The six-month-old pit-husky mix weighed 23 pounds when it was seized by humane officers during a search of 323 Prospect St., Warren in late August. Officials said a healthy dog of that mix and age would weigh between 40 and 45 pounds.

The animal was reportedly infested with parasites and “had obviously never been to a vet or received any shots,” according to police.

According to Humane Officer and Paws Along the River Humane Society Executive Director Karen Kolos, the dog was seized and its health is improving.

The animal was taken to Kinzua Veterinary Center for an assessment and is currently living and under care at the Humane Society.

“The dog is doing well,” Kolos said. “Paws staff is seeing improvement every day.”
