A pit bull discovered at an abandoned property in New London today needs a lot of medical care and a lot of love.
New London Animal Control said they found the dog, who they are calling Benedict, tied behind an abandoned property on Blinman Street.
The dog has several open cuts, bacterial and yeast infections and is missing an eye.
He's being given antibiotics and other medications, but will need additional treatment from a vet.
Animal Control is asking pet lovers to spread the word and help find this dog a new home so he can get the medical attention he needs.
