Dog Found During Snow Storm, Woman Facing Charges
GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OH — A woman is facing charges after her dog was found in very bad shape during Wednesday’s snow storm.
The female boxer was found around 6 p.m. on Osborne Road. She was extremely emaciated and is missing an eye. However, the eye appears to have been operated on professionally.
The Garfield Heights Dog Warden say Navada Williams, 43, of Osborn Road, is charged with one count of animal cruelty, one count of animal abandonment, two counts of failure to get a dog registration and one count of filing a false alarm.
The warden says Williams saw the report of the missing dog and called stating the dog was hers. Authorities determined she made a false report, initially claiming she was not the owner when the dog was picked up by the warden.
The malnourished dog remains in the care of the warden and is receiving treatment by the Family Vet Clinic.
