BEND, OR -- Bend Police say a man who delivered an injured puppy to the Humane Society of Central Oregon is responsible for the animal's injuries. Dallas Urig turned the dog over to the Bend shelter last month, saying he’d found it near the Pavilion. 


Investigators say the 29-year-old was, in fact, the owner of the puppy and failed to provide medical care after it was injured by another dog in his home. Urig was arrested last week for Animal Neglect.

 

The puppy continues to recover from multiple skull fractures and is not yet available for adoption. Bend Police expressed appreciation to local veterinary partners and the community for support in the case. They also remind pet owners there are certain responsibilities in providing "minimum necessary care" under Oregon law.
