    Authorities Search for Owner of Abandoned, Neglected Dog Found in Beverly

    Authorities in Massachusetts need the public's help identifying a small, terrier-type dog who was found in poor condition, wandering the streets of Beverly on Wednesday.

    The Animal Rescue League of Boston said the 10-year-old male dog was found at the intersection of Charnock and Prospect streets.

    The dog was severely matted, dirty, underweight, and malnourished. He also had extremely overgrown and curled nails which caused him pain to walk.

    Authorities said the dog is neutered but not microchipped.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Anyone with information on the dog is urged to contact Beverly Animal Control at 978-605-2361 or ARL Law Enforcement at 617-426-9170.
