An emaciated dog was found chained in the front yard of a Central Falls residence early Friday morning.
The pit-bull mix was found chained to a pipe in front of an apartment building on Foundry street shortly after midnight.
Tenants heard the dog crying and called police. Police responded but could not identify the dog. One occupant agreed to take the dog in overnight and in the morning police brought the dog to a veterinarian.
The veterinarian said it looked like the dog had not eaten in over ten days.
Police and the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals continue to search for the owner of the dog.
