MEDINA, Ohio — The Medina County SPCA seized two emaciated dogs from a property in Seville Tuesday as part of an animal cruelty case.

One of the animals was a 7-year-old pit bull, who investigators say had no muscle mass over his entire body and weighed 31 pounds, which is less than half of what he should weigh. When the dog was found, it could only take a few steps before collapsing.

Humane officials named him Andor, which means bravery.

The second dog is a 3-year-old boxer. He also had limited muscle mass and his organ functions were off.

He was named Abu and was also severely underweight.

Both will have slow recoveries due to their conditions, according to officials. The SPCA is seeking donations for the animals’ treatment.
