When a probation officer called the Society, she was concerned about the safety and well being of her client's dog. The Neptune resident had tied his emaciated pit bull outside of his home. The Society's ACO responded to the call for assistance and found a young female brindle pit bull.
A discussion was held with the owner to ascertain the well being of his 5 month old dog. He advised that the dog had "worms" but was being treated by his veterinarian. A phone call to the vet revealed that this was false information. The pup's owner advised that he had purchased the pup from an Asbury Park resident.
A visit to the Asbury Park resident revealed a female and two male pit bulls and no puppies After a further conversation, the Neptune resident relinquished ownership of the youngster we call "Alexa". The matter is under further investigation.
