Owner of Abused Husky Puppy Found

CREATED May. 17, 2012

The owner of a dog left abused and abandoned in Lansing's Mount Hope Cemetery has been found. Ingham County Animal Control Director Jamie McAloon Lampman says tips led to the owner.

Lampman says the case will be turned over to the prosecutor's office soon.

The 12-week-old Siberian Husky was discovered Monday. Animal Control investigators say the dog was a "shell of skin and bones and his whole body was oozing with infection."

The dog has been dubbed "Odie" and is recovering nicely. It could be placed with a foster family as early as this weekend. Animal control already has a list of potential adopters.
