Dog found with mouth bound

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Paws 2 Help, an organization that helps find homes for animals, says it is now caring for a dog that was severely abused.

The organization says on Saturday, someone brought the dog to their facility. The dog's mouth was bound with an elastic hair band in an effort to keep the dog from barking.

Paws 2 Help says the dog's wounds are to the bone.

The animal is now being cared for by the facility's clinic.

The organization has contacted Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.
