Suspect sought by humane officer for “severe” case of Kanawha County doberman neglect

Local News

Humane officers in Kanawha County need your help identifying the person or persons responsible for the “severe neglect” of a stray dog brought to Kanawha Charleston Humane Association on October 31.

According to a Facebook post from the lifesaving shelter, the 10-month-old Doberman Pinscher, who is now known as “Ozzy”, was brought to KCHA by a Good Samaritan who lives along Lakeview Drive in Nitro.

The post states that Ozzy is “severely emaciated, forty pounds under weight, has a bone deformity, pressure sores, and scarring.”  Only Ozzy’s spirit, they said, remains unbroken.

If humane officers can identify the person responsible, charges are expected to be filed.  That’s where shelter officials say you come in.  They fully believe that someone out there knows who Ozzy once belonged to.

If you have any information in the case, you’re asked to contact KCHA at 304-342-1576 or email Executive Director, Chelsea Staley.

Despite the numerous adoption inquires for Ozzy, Staley said he is far from being ready to leave foster care.  He is being fostered by rescue group, Doberman Underground.
