Dog makes complete turnaround after being found on parkway
A dog who was left for dead on the side of a parkway in New York City has made a complete turnaround after being adopted by a Garden City family.
As News 12 previously reported, St. Vincent, now called Chenz, was found abandoned in a garbage bag in Brooklyn with his mouth taped shut in December. Police had received a tip about the dog being on the Jackie Robinson Parkway.
Carla Mohan, of the New York Bully Crew, says Chenz had pressure sores on his hips and legs from him being neglected and sitting in his own urine and feces. Mohan says she named the dog St. Vincent after her father, who had recently passed away.
Chenz has made a recovery and now has thousands of followers on his Instagram account @Therealsaintvincent.
Though Chenz is doing great, New York Bully Crew is still trying to find the person who hurt him and is offering a reward.
In honor of how well Chenz is doing, New York Bully Crew has an adoption special for their older dogs. Pre-approved adopters can get dogs ages 6 and up for free the whole month of March.
