The dog, an eight-week-old terrier found on June 1, was suffering from a severe eye condition, resulting in one eye rupturing and the other being severely swollen.
The pup ended up requiring surgery that resulted in the loss of both eyes.
“This poor puppy was vocalizing in pain up to the point of surgery,” said Brad Nichols, Senior Manager Animal Cruelty Investigations with the Calgary Humane Society.
“He was clearly and overtly suffering.”
The puppy was found near the 2400 block of 43 Street SE in the community of Forest Lawn.
He was found with no form of identification and the owner has not been located.
Calgary Humane Society Peace Officers are currently seeking the owner.
“Calgary Humane Society Peace Officers have opened an investigative file due to the neglected condition of the puppy’s eyes,” according to a release.
Anyone with information regarding the investigation is asked to call 403-205-4455 or report online at calgaryhumane.ca
