A dog was rescued from the Longview Lake shoreline Friday after he was found chained to a cinder block.
Officials with Great Plains SPCA said they think the shepherd-lab mix was left to drown.
He was caked in mud when he was found Friday morning.
“There is no doubt this was intentional,” said Tonya Hampton, an animal control officer and Great Plains SPCA employee.
The dog, who is believed to be 5 to 7 years old, is now being called Deputy.
He is being cared for at Great Plains SPCA’s Independence location.
Anyone with information about who may have left him at the lake is asked to call 913-475-6164.
