The former owner has been revealed as Nicole Baker, who admitted to dumping the dog (formerly named Mia) before moving to Texas to live with her boyfriend days before the dog was found.
I highly doubt that any sane human being would do such a horrible act. No one in his right mind would think that getting rid of your Dog is a right decision.
And no human would ever think that the best way to get rid of your dog is to throw in the trash
But you know, there is evil in this world and many people are doing acts that can only be described as being ‘evil’. I simply can not find any other word.
While Nathan Bennie, a trash collector, was on his daily rounds he was shocked when he looked into one of the trash cans.
What he saw in there was unbelievable. Inside there was a Dog, she was very weak, she was starving to the point where he could see all her bones through the skin.
He didn’t believe the situation, how would a dog end up there, and why!
The truth was soon revealed, because every criminal has to do one stupid thing, and this was just the case.
The owner of the dog forgot that the dog was micro-shipped, and that they could get her, and they did. Once they located her she was arrested.
She confesses to throwing the Dog in the trash can to get rid of her, so she could follow her boyfriend to Texas!!
But before starting her new life in Texas, she is going to spend some time in prison, as she is charged with animal cruelty, I really hope she gets sometime to think about her act and how horrible & inhumane it was, and I think she would have a lot of time to spare in jail, so I guess she will.
The dog, which is only 10 months old, has now gained back 8 pounds and on her way to recovery.
He’s already got a lot of requests for adoption, and once she is completely healthy.
She will go to her new loving home, to be with a family, that hopefully will treat him with the love she deserves
Fawna in her new home.....
Nicole Baker pleaded guilty to a summary charge of disorderly conduct and agreed to enter the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program for first-time offenders on a charge of animal cruelty, according to her attorney, Chris Huffman.
Baker quickly left the magistrate court in East Huntingdon Township after entering her plea and declined comment to Pittsburgh's Action News 4, other than to say, "Why don't you leave me alone?"
She will be ordered to do community service, pay $620 in restitution and undergo a mental health evaluation.
"I think she needed to answer for what she did. At least there is going to be a guilty plea on there, on her record," humane agent Jan Dillon said after the hearing.
Formerly named Mia, and now Fawna, the dog was described as "skin and bones" by the Humane Society of Westmoreland County after a trash collector reported finding her inside a garbage bag and garbage can outside Baker's former Hempfield Township home on Oct. 30.
Dillon said Baker will no longer be allowed to adopt a dog in Pennsylvania, and she was told that Baker intends to move back to Texas.
State police contended that Baker left the dog in the garbage can and moved to Texas to be with her boyfriend. Investigators reviewed text messages that they said Baker sent to friends after the story of her dog went public.
"By reading through the messages and things of that nature, she had intentionally misled people that were offering to help when it came to taking care of Mia, the dog. She acknowledged the fact that at some point in time, she realized what she was doing, she fully knew it was wrong, and still she put a dog, her dog, in a garbage can," Trooper Stephen Limani said Nov. 5.
Baker's daughter, Brittany Prinkey, lives next door to the trailer where her mother lived before moving to Texas. Prinkey said she was subjected to harassment and threats after the dog was found in the trash.
People have been throwing stuff at my house, at my car, threatening me, telling me I should die, I should be put in a trash bag and left to suffocate without food and water," Prinkey said in November. "I never thought my mom would be able to do something like that. It's my mom. I never thought she would do something like that."
Since being found in the trash can, Fawna has gained weight and received donated toys, sweaters and treats from Burton's Total Pet in Greensburg. She was adopted by a veterinary technician who works with the Humane Society.
