Man chained dog to tree for 4 years

Fined $25 dollars for animal cruelty

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WCPO-TV) — A Middletown man was charged with animal cruelty after police say his German shepherd was chained to a tree for four years.

Authorities said the dog was starved, infected and physically abused. And when all was said and done, the dog’s owner was fined $25.

Owner Jeremy Shane Temple called the German shepherd Toby. But his rescuers renamed him Joseph, after the biblical character who was left for dead and became a ruler.
