Original Story :
ECTOR CO.-A warrant has been issued for the owner of two emaciated boxers after being taken into veterinarian custody around December 31 of last year from a home in West Odessa.
The Ector County Sheriff's Department says two class a misdemeanor warrants for animal cruelty were issued to the dog's owner Luis Deras. There is one warrant for each of the two dogs.
You may remember CBS 7 reported that a local woman who saw the dogs in poor condition took action and brought one to the vet before law enforcement became involved and eventually both dogs were taken into custody.
The dogs were released to Austin Boxer Rescue by the Sheriff’s Department on January 9.
