LIBERTY TOWNSHIP | A dog was rescued Saturday from a trailer by police who were called to check on its welfare.

Police were called at 3:30 p.m. to a home on Wilson Court by the manager of the mobile home park who thought the dog may have been abandoned. Police also said the owner of the home, Amy Loney, 32, was wanted on an outstanding warrant for neglect of a dependent, according to a police report.

When police arrived, the officer found the yard was littered with toys and lawn chairs. The grass was shin-high to the officer.

Officers entered the home and found the floor covered in dog feces, dirty plates and garbage in the kitchen and living room. Dirty clothes and garbage were found in the bathroom and a child’s bedroom was “almost impossible to enter, due to the clutter of clothing and garbage,” the officer noted in the report.

Police found the dog, a 3-year-old black Lab, but no food or water bowl for it.

Animal control took the dog to the Porter County animal shelter. Officials there said the dog was severely under weight, but is expected to be OK.

Loney turned herself in Monday at the Porter County Jail on the neglect of a dependent warrant.
