The Caddo District Attorney's office has confirmed that an affidavit for that individual's arrest is being drawn up.
The puppy, dubbed "Braveheart," by his rescuers, was discovered in September by the owners of the storage facility. At the time that the pup was found, he was near death.
Braveheart had been chained to a car inside of the unit, with no access to food or water - by the time that he was discovered, he was emaciated and unable to move.
Since that time, the puppy has been recovering with the assistance of intensive veterinary care. Up until Wednesday night, he was being fostered by Ronda Spataro, a veterinary technician for Benton Animal Hospital, and her husband, Bo.
On Wednesday evening, the Caddo Parish Animal Control seized Braveheart from his foster home, holding him as "property," as part of their investigation.
According to the KTAL News report, the cruelty charge against the individual suspected of abusing Braveheart is a misdemeanor.
