Glue coated dogs found in abandoned home

According to Thursday's WKRN News, two small dogs, covered in plumber's glue, were discovered this week inside of an abandoned home in Nashville, Tenn.

The victimized dogs, described as female Chihuahuas, were found by a landlord on Wednesday; they were taken to Metro Animal Control for veterinary care.

By the time the pair was found, the glue had hardened; though some of the fur coated in the substance was shaved away, a veterinarian has stated that it could be weeks before the glue can be fully removed.

Animal control officials want to find out who is responsible for painting the glue on the dogs, and abandoning them in the house.

Animal Control Cruelty investigator Billy Biggs voiced his anger over the cruelty the dogs were subjected to:

You go from being sad to being mad,"

There's no reason to do this to an animal."

The abused dogs have been named Opal and Sapphire and they will be held for at least six weeks before being made available for adoption.

When and if the people responsible are found, they could be charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a felony.
