Canandaigua, N.Y. (WHAM) - Three people were arrested and charged with animal cruelty after probation officers found a dog had been left with a broken leg for weeks without treatment.
Ontario County Humane Society officers were called to a home on Jefferson Avenue in Canandaigua on November 22 to check on a dog.
The dog, a 9-month-old pitbull mix named Ivy, had been dragging her right rear leg when she walked. Probation officers who were checking in with two people on probation at the home noticed Ivy's injury.
Officers said Ivy had been unable to walk on the leg for about two weeks, had not been seen by a veterinarian - nor had any attempt been made to contact one by anyone living in the home.
Ivy was taken to a veterinarian, who discovered her right hip socket was broken and needed an operation that was performed two days later.
Brittany Lee Foringer, 41, Justin Payne, 39, and Preston Barr, 39, were all arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
All three will appear at a later date in the City of Canandaigua Court to answer the charge.
Ivy is currently recovering at the Ontario County Humane Society Shelter.
