Emaciated dog found at gas station

Emaciated dog found at gas station – Florida woman facing charges

The discovery of an emaciated dog, found at a gas station in Sarasota, has led to charges against a Bradenton, Florida woman. According to NBC 2 News, the skeletal dog had an embedded microchip which led the authorities to 21-year-old Brittany Osborne.

Osborne had multiple stories for investigators – first, she claimed that the four-year-old dog, named “Adria,” had run away from home a month earlier. The woman then changed her story and told the authorities that she had given the gaunt pit bull mix to a friend to “get rid of” because she couldn’t afford vet care.

The friend turned out to be the “good Samaritan” who initially claimed to have found the dog at the Sarasota gas station. The dog’s dismal condition indicated that she had been neglected and confined to a small space.

Adria has a new name, “Hope,” and she is being cared for by animal services, reports CBS 12 News. The woman accused of neglecting her so badly is facing felony animal cruelty charges and she is banned from owning or “being around” animals.

    Sure looks like Brittney Osborne had enough money to feed her fat ass. She should be banned from food for a month.

      I feel so badly this furbaby suffered……

      I hope a new furever home will treat this treasure as a beloved family member.

      IMHO this POS owner should be given a harsh, long prison term (hopefully it will clear off the smug smirk on her fat ugly face)……

    Certainly looks like this “thing” hasn’t been without food has she? Bread and water for her and let her see how gaunt she will be (although from her picture, it would take a which to be in the condition her dog was in. Glad the dog was given to a shelter and hope a rescue or family help her become the wonderful dog she can be.

    She is a complete disgrace to mankind. She obviously does NOT know what it is like to miss a meal. This PORKER fed her fat ugly face day in and day out without giving this poor dog a bone. Put her in jail for this cruelty along with the abuse of putting the dog in too confined a space. GROSS PIG.

    Just look at her big, bloated, ugly face. She makes sure she gorges her belly a plenty every day. It’s times like this when “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” sounds like the only kind of fitting justice. The hard-hearted, twisted nincompoop needs serious consequences, as ALL animal abuser do. When the courts start making these perps pay and suffer significantly and thoroughly, we will see the myriad cases decrease dramatically.

    Anyone who could commit such atrocities is a sociopath. Not sure what the penalties are there but in almost all instances it usually amounts to a slap on the wrist. I am sure there is a lifetime of misery ahead for those who come in contact with this monster. Please pray that the vulnerable like this sweet dog are spared from the clutches of this narrsisst who will I’m sure will try to appear normal while roaming amoungst us
