This post is not an easy one, and definitely one we hoped to never have to write. Our sweet Lou fought a hard battle, but ultimately lost the fight. We are so proud of how brave and strong he was these last 5 days. This is so unfair. He deserved so much better than this. We are at a loss for words at this time, but we want to thank everyone for their support this week. We do take comfort in knowing that Lou didn't die alone, chained up in a backyard, left to fend for himself. We will seek justice for him. We love you, Lou. RIP.

36-year-old David Neanover, of Reiley Township has been charged with animal cruelty after anonymous complaints to the Butler County Sheriff's Office Dog Warden about an emaciated dog. "No normal human being could look at this dog and think this is acceptable," Sheriff Jones said. Neanover was charged with one count of animal cruelty and will appear in front of Judge Robert Lyons at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 2, at Area I Court in Oxford, according to Tara Bowser, Executive Director of the Animal Friends Humane Society.

In the initial exam at the shelter, It was found that the dog has an ulcer on its tongue making it hard for the animal to eat or drink. "The pictures are hard to view. It's much worse in person. Animal Friends will do everything they can to save this poor animal but the current condition is very bad. I am thankful that this was reported. I just hope he can be saved and adopted to someone who cares," Sheriff Jones said last week.

The humane society had been giving updates on his all week, including a post April 24 describing his anemia, hookworms and low protein levels. The rocks found by X-rays, however, were unexpected.
