Two have been charged in South Carolina after their Great Dane chewed off his own foot after being left tied up for weeks without food or water.
Owners Jessica James, 32, and Skylar Craft, 38, have been charged with ill treatment of animals.
The dog was rescued in Ware Shoals, South Carolina, on Nov. 19 after a neighbor notified police that it had chewed off his foot, said Noah’s Arks Rescue, who has been taking care of the 6-year-old Great Dane named Luke since his rescue from his owners.
Due to an infection that appears to have invaded his bone, Luke will also have the leg of his chewed off foot amputated Tuesday, Noah’s Arks Rescue said.
