Sheriff calls it one of the most severe cases of canine abuse he has seen.


Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones is asking for help from the public finding the owner of a neglected dog.

Sheriff Richard K. Jones reports on Monday December 09, 2019, the Butler County Sheriff’s Office Dog Wardens responded to Millikin Woods Park, located at N.

A microchip was located on the canine and our Dog Wardens are waiting to hear back from the veterinarian for any leads. We are reaching out to anyone that may recognize this canine that would lead us to her owner.
