The Ontario SPCA is looking for information from the public after an extremely emaciated dog was found in Nepean.
The male dog is a brindle-coloured Labrador-type cross breed, estimated to be between one and two years of age.
A passerby reported seeing the dog roaming around in a parking lot on Stonefield Private, near Prince of Wales Drive and Strandherd Drive, on February 28.
The dog's was taken to a veterinarian for examination, as his hips, spine and ribs were visibly protruding.
He is now receiving the necessary care required.
The dog was not microchipped and was not wearing a collar at the time he was found.
