Posted: Aug 06, 2018 3:54 PM Updated:

You may have seen the sad photos circulating on social media. This dog - severely malnourished - chained to a tree at a Barrigada home.

Now, the owner is in the dog house.

50-year-old Lenard Garrido was booked and released earlier this afternoon.

He is charged with three counts of animal abuse, which is a felony offense.

We should note this wasn't the only dog seen at the home.

Department of Agriculture's Conservation Enforcement and Animal Control Section also located two other dogs in a similar condition.

All three dogs were taken to GAIN for treatment and observation.
