Last week, the dog warden in Butler County, Ohio, reached out to the public for help finding the owner of two badly neglected and malnourished dogs. According to Journal-News, the owner has been identified and charged and it just so happens to it was the same person who claimed to have found them.
According to the Butler County Sheriff, the owner of the female dogs is identified as 42-year-old Brian Trauthwein. Animal Friends Humane Society broke the news to Facebook followers:
