Animal Welfare League gives update on dog found in Warren dumpster
The dog found in a Warren dumpster is now in good hands.
The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County provided an update on Phoenix Saturday, saying they're treating her open wounds and closely monitoring her recovery.
Phoenix was found Thursday when a dumpster behind some apartments along Beal Street was being emptied, according to Lori Shandor, CEO of the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County. Shandor said they don't believe the Pit Bull mix got into the dumpster by herself because of the dumpster's height and her condition. The dog was found underweight with open wounds.
The shelter has been getting dozens of calls about adopting Phoenix, but they say it will be a while before she is ready for a new home.
Anyone with information about how the dog got into the dumpster is asked to call the shelter at 330-539-5300.
