UPDATE (1:17 p.m. Tuesday) — Corpus Christi Animal Care Services said Tuesday that Baby Boy will be euthanized. The agency reports that his condition deteriorated significantly before he was able to be placed, despite being "stabilized, triaged and treated by our vet staff" and stable overnight.
Animal Care Services has initiated an animal abuse investigation following the discovery of an injured dog.
The animal was discovered by an Animal Care Service officer, with a severe gash on it's neck. Animal Care officials believe it was caused by an embedded collar.
The dog, which has been giving the name Baby Boy, is currently at Animal Care Services.
It has received some treatment for it's injuries, but Animal Care Service officials said Baby Boy needs more help.
They are in contact with rescuers to take in the dog and get it further medical treatment.
