Animal protection police officers are looking for the owner of an abused dog found last week in the area of Chatham Colony Court and Moorings Drive.

Police said the dog was “barely recognizable” and had nearly two pounds of matted hair covering is face and body. One of the dog’s eyes was visible and the other was infected and may not be functional. Anyone who recognizes this dog or knows where its owner lives is asked to contact the Animal Services Division at 703-691-2131.
