BAY SHORE - A neglected dog who nearly died before he was rescued has found a new home.

Ziggy was found abandoned in Lindenhurst early last month.

The pup was not able to walk correctly because of almost four pounds of matted fur and overgrown nails.

Ziggy is now all cleaned up and has been introduced to his new family at Babylon Animal Shelter.

Ziggy's new owners say they were horrified seeing what was done to the dog.

A $2,000 reward is still being offered for information leading to the arrest for whoever abandoned and neglected Ziggy.
