Police in Willoughby, Ohio, are hoping to find the heartless person who abandoned an ailing dog in the woods with a crate and old pillow. The authorities reached out to the public about the disturbing situation on Friday:

On Tuesday December 4, Willoughby Police officers were dispatched to the area of St. Clair Extension, east of Erie Road for a dog running loose. Officers found a friendly, but afraid pit bull mix running around loose in the wooded area.

According to the police, the dog appeared to have been abandoned for days in nearly freezing weather.


Officials were finally able to capture the frightened dog and she was taken to the Lake County Dog Shelter for care. She has been given a name (Lucy) and she is finally safe and warm.
