BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Who neglected ”Parker” the Shih Tzu, then threw the dog over a fence in West Boca Raton? That’s what investigators want to know and are asking the public for help.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office issued this statement Friday morning:
POLICE STATEMENT ON THROWN DOG:
In the early morning hours of June 8, 2022, a volunteer at the Tri-County Animal Rescue, located at 21287 Boca Rio Road Boca Raton, found the pictured dog along the fence line, on the north side of the Tri-County Animal Rescue property. The dog could barely stand, let alone walk. The facility is gated and locked at night.
It appears someone threw the dog over the fence. The dog is not microchipped and had no collar. Veterinary staff said the dog, who they named “Parker”, is a female Shih Tzu and is approximately 6 years old.
Veterinary staff stated the dog has been neglected for a long period of time and required immediate surgery due to her condition. The Tri-County veterinary team performed surgery and saved her life. She is still in guarded condition, and is recovering at the facility.
Detectives are seeking the public’s assistance.
