FLINT, TX (KLTV) - Friday, the SPCA of East Texas seized a boxer from a home in the 3000 block of Oak Hill drive in Flint.
The dog was seized after authorities got a warrant after an officer had visited the home and saw that the dog had been tied to the back door and had no water.
Later the president of the SPCA, Deborah Dobbs, went back to the home to seize the dog.
She told us, "He is severely underweight, his ribs are showing, this animal is in need for some food and water."
The dog was taken directly to the vet's office where it will be testing for illnesses and treated if necessary. After that it will then be placed into foster care.
