Ontario County Sheriff’s deputies said they charged a Middlesex man, Guy S. Johnson, 52, of 1764 Upper Road, with cruelty to animals after Johnson failed to provide nourishment to his dog that was found Oct. 8 running down North Main Street in Canandaigua. Deputies said the dog, a 6-year-old female, a Peekapoo, had a severe infection in her mouth that caused part of her jaw to deteriorate. Her fur was matted with feces, she had fleas, parasites and a skin infection, deputies said an examination showed.
The dog was treated by several veterinary clinics and is now in foster care, deputies said.
Johnson was given an appearance ticket to appear in City of Canandaigua Court and released.
