    An abused, emaciated dog was found dead in Griswold and animal control is trying to determine who is responsible for the death of the pup.

    The male pit bull was alive when someone left him on Bitgood Road in Griswold, according to a Facebook post on the Town of Griswold Borough of Jewett City Animal Control page.

    He had been beaten and kicked repeatedly, according to animal control.

    Animal control has named the dog “Pistos,” Greek for loyalty and faith and will bury him.

    Animal control asks anyone who is missing a dog or has information to call (860)383-3993.
