The animal control supervisor noticed a dog walking down the street with visible scars, bleeding and dog was as thin as a skeleton. The dog was a brown Doberman on a leash walking with a man.
The man told officers that the dog did not belong to him. Police also say he gave a false address and phone number.
The Doberman was taken to an animal clinic for treatment. A microchip was later found on the dog showing that the dog belonged to 53-year-old Gary Scott, the man officers found with the dog.
Scott was arrested for aggravated cruelty to animals and giving a false address. He was released from the Gwinnett County Detention Center on $125,000 bond.
