MILLERSBURG, Ohio — The Holmes County dog warden, Jon Beam, is seeking any and all information regarding the person or people responsible for the care of an emaciated female dog. 

The dog was found wandering the streets near Township Road 90, just outside of Killbuck, Monday morning.

According to Warden Beam, a dog shelter volunteer found the dog after being alerted by a neighbor to the dog's condition. The dog is extremely emaciated. 

She is currently being cared for at a veterinarian's office in Millersburg, where she is receiving the treatment necessary to hopefully save her life. 

Officials are working to determine if she has any underlying health conditions that would aid in her poor condition. 

She is described as a "super sweet dog," Warden Beam believes she is anywhere between six and eight years old. 

An official investigation has been opened in an effort to uncover her she landed in her current state. 

The Holmes County Dog Warden's Office is required to hold her for a minimum 72 hours before she can be put into a  dog rescue group or adopted.

Her outcome and timeline will depend on what the veterinarian finds her health to be.

Anyone with any information on who the dog belongs to or how she landed in this situation is asked to contact the the Holmes County dog warden at (330)  674-6301.
