Abused Dog Continues To Improve

Posted Updated

GARNER — Sydney, a two-year-old dog allegedly abused by its owner,

continues to improve

at the

Wake County SPCA


The dog, a Rottweiler-Beagle mix, is recovering from a broken jaw and other injuries.

Her owner, Brett Merrick of Garner, is

charged with animal cruelty

after witnesses say he stomped on the dog's head last Saturday.

The SPCA hopes to gain custody so it can find Sydney a good home. A volunteer will be providing foster care for her as she continues to improve.

In the meantime, the SPCA has started the fund to help cover the cost of vet bills. To contribute, call at 772-2326 or send donations to:

SPCA of Wake County 219-B Garner Business Court Garner, NC 27529

Please make checks payable to the SPCA of Wake County and write "Cruelty Fund" in the memo line.
