Police say on January 2, a Northern Cambria officer found the dog tied in the backyard of 36-year-old Brandon Yamrick’s Elder Avenue home.
Police say the dog was severely emaciated, with bones showing and significant fur loss.
The officer instructed Yamrick to take the dog to a veterinarian for care; however, he did not, according to authorities.
The dog was later surrendered to the Indiana County Humane Society.
Yamrick has been charged with misdemeanor offenses for animal neglect and animal cruelty.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 6th.
