JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – Animal control officers are seeking information after a dog was found with multiple lacerations.

On Tuesday, animal control officials along with the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call referencing a dog that had sustained severe cuts to its throat and body near the area of Hartley Drive & Clarence Drive.

When officers arrived, they discovered a 10-year-old white male boxer had been severely injured and needed medical attention. The dog was immediately transported to a local veterinarian where he underwent surgery and is doing well. He will continue to remain under close observation by animal control until he is reunited with his family.
