Dog left outside apartment in frigid temperatures rescued; has entire leg amputated

One dog left in the frigid temperatures outside an apartment in Irvington is lucky to be alive.
The dog, who rescuers named Lux, had been tied with a rope to a pole on the corner of North Maple Avenue and Eastern Parkway.
He was extremely matted and in intense pain, because the matting not only blocked circulation to one of his paws, but pinched and pulled his skin with every step.
His paw was so severely damaged, and his entire leg had to be amputated. St. Hubert’s Animal Center leaders say it is important to reach out if you need help.
"It's just sad that somebody didn't reach out,” says Tiffany Barrow, vice president of operations. “We are here, we are open and our doors are open. We are non-judgmental. Reach out to us and we can help you. We have lots of community programs that we can help find care for animals when you're stuck in a bind. We know that you need that help and we are here to help."    
A $5,000 reward is being given to anyone who knows anything about the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call 908-526-3330.
