ROME – Animal cruelty investigators are asking the public for information about a dog which was found tied to a log near the Erie Canal last week.

The Central New York SPCA says on July 30 a dog (pictured in this article) was discovered by Rome Animal Control tied to a log in the canal water. The dog was found on the canal trail at the end of Luquer Street in Rome.

The SPCA says they are looking for information regarding this abandoned dog. They believe the dog was intentionally tied up and left behind. Investigators say the dog is "doing well."
