Dog with Broken Leg Chained and Abandoned

The latest Lehigh Valley case of animal cruelty involves a pit bull with a broken leg left abandoned and chained to a trailer.

An abused young pit bull with a broken leg found in Lower Saucon Township has a new name - Anchor - because he was found tied to a boat trailer with a chain so heavy he couldn't lift his head.

A resident of a Kohler Drive apartment complex found the dog and called police Tuesday morning. Police are searching for the dog's owner.

The dog was taken to the Center for Animal Health and Welfare, a non-profit, no-kill shelter in Williams Township. The center welcomes donations to help pay for Anchor's surgery and care. 

Anyone with information about the dog is asked to call Cpl. Tim Connell of Lower Saucon Police at 610-330-2200.

This is just the latest of several animal cruelty cases in the Lehigh Valley this summer.

  • A in South Whitehall Township a few days ago.
  • A Northampton Countyafter leaving in a Plainfield Township field.
  • In June, a Lower Saucon man was cited for violating a firearms ordinance after he , saying the dog was attacking his rabbits and chickens.
