A Connecticut man is accused of abandoning his family’s dog at a vacant house. According to Tuesday’s publication of the the Trumbull Daily Voice, the man accused of the cruel act has been identified as 56-year-old Stergios Vasiliou, of Bridgeport.

After the family’s 11-year-old pit bull, “Tank,” disappeared in June, Vasiliou claimed that he had dumped the dog somewhere in Easton or New Milford. The dog’s family began to alert area police departments and eventually, the dog was located behind a vacant house on Old Sow Road – the staving dog was chained in the yard reported the Connecticut Post.

On September 21, Vasiliou opted to turn himself into the authorities after he learned that there was a warrant out for his arrest. He is facing a charge of cruelty to animals and has already been released on bond; Vasiliou is due in court on September 29.

    It sounds like they found Tank in time, no thanks to this vile POS. If I were his wife and kids, he would be permanently out of my life! No time with any grandchildren nor future grandkids, and certainly no phone calls nor any contact of any kind.
