Dog left tied to pole in West Haven park recovering and looking for new home
Shelter officials have started calling the dog “Hank.” They said the dog, while scared, is doing well. They added, “He is a very sweet boy and we are giving him time to settle in after his ordeal.”
The shelter said they have had a lot of interest in him, and are currently accepting applications. People interested can call 203-937-3642.
The dog appeared to have been tied to a pole Monday and had apparently slipped his collar and was waiting, cold and scared, in Morris Park, police said Monday.
Last month, a dog was found abandoned in a cage by a dumpster in East Haven. PETA is offering a reward in that case.
