On 18 Apr 19 Sgt. McGilton filed charges for failure to register and 4 counts of prohibitions concerning companion animals (cruelty to animals) on Johnathon David Isner, age 28, 2710 Laurel Ridge Road, Lowell, OH.  On 10 Apr 19 Deputy H Tornes and Sgt. McGilton responded to 2710 Laurel Ridge Road, Lowell, OH, in reference to a report of two emaciated dogs on this property.  In plain view, Deputies observed a 4-5-year-old male mixed breed dog tied to a tree.  This dog was extremely emaciated hips, backbone and ribs protruding.  This dog scored a 3 of 9 on the body condition scale.  A container of water, but no food or shelter were found in the area within reach of the dog.  A 7-year-old female mixed breed dog was observed tied to a porch in plain view.  Every bone in the dog’s body was observed protruding from a distance.  This dog was severely emaciated and scored a 2 of 9 on the body condition scale.  There were four nursing puppies approximately 5-6 weeks old with this dog, which were all malnourished.  The puppies scored 3-3.5 of 9 on the body condition scale.  The puppies attempted to nurse, but the female dog did not appear to have any milk as she was too emaciated.   An attempt to contact the homeowner met with negative results.  While knocking at the door another dog was seen inside and appeared to be in decent body condition.  Isner arrived while deputies were at the residence and he advised these were his animals.  Two adult dogs and four puppies were removed from the property and taken for medical treatment.

On 17 Apr 19 at approximately 1119 hours Deputy H Tornes responded to 804 Grant Avenue, Belpre, OH, in regards to two dogs at this residence, which were tethered outside without food, water, and shelter.   It was reported that these dogs were left outside in the same or similar conditions every day from 7 a.m. to dusk, even in the direct sun.  Deputy Tornes observed the two dogs in plain view, with no form of shelter or shade.  The dogs appeared to be tangled around a fire pit and a child’s bike.  Verification was made through the Washington County Auditor’s Office that the dogs were not registered.  The dogs were seized and a notice of a hearing was left with a subject at the home.   Contact was made with Taylor M. Dye, age 21, who confirmed she owned both dogs and had not registered them as she believed she had until they were six months old.  A summons is being requested for Dye for failing to register his two dogs and 2 counts of cruelty to companion animals.
