Owner cited after dog, puppies found starving

On Tuesday, Nov. 25, Beaufort County Animal Services visited a home in Beaufort after the family’s dog reportedly bit another dog. When Animal Service Officers arrived, they found a mother dog and her five young puppies that appeared to be starving. The puppies are believed to be 4 weeks old.

Animal Services immediately took custody of the dogs and cited the owner with Animal Cruelty.

The mother and her puppies were being examined by a veterinarian who says all the animals are extremely malnourished and anemic.

The public is urged to call 843-255-5010 if they believe an animal is being mistreated. Reports can stay anonymous..
