It has been a devastating week for dogs owned by negligent people in the United States. As much of the nation experienced temperatures well below freezing, the grim toll of ignorant, or uncaring, dog owners has become painfully evident.
On Wednesday, the deceased, frozen dog was found outside of the home of 46-year-old Ronald Eugene Haines' home in the Orviston area of Curtin Township.
One of Haines' neighbors described the dog as "friendly."
