An Amityville man is accused of severely neglecting his elderly dog.
The Suffolk SPCA says Mitchell Braithwaite failed to provide necessary vet care for Sandy, his 12-year-old chow.
The SPCA says Sandy was visibly neglected, had wounds and was covered with maggots.
She's now being cared for at the Town of Babylon Animal Shelter.
Braithwaite is due in court in September.
