The scrawny golden retriever mix was found in Brooklyn, and MSPCA has law enforcement searching for the dog’s owner


Law enforcement officials are seeking the public’s help in identifying the owner of a young Golden Retriever mix who was found emaciated in the area of ​​Newton Street and Clyde Street in Brooklyn.

The dog, which MSPCA staff named “Brooke,” was brought to Angell Animal Medical Center in Jamaica Plain on Wednesday “in need of serious medical assistance,” the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said in a statement.

“This dog was in bad shape when she came to us,” said Mike Kelly, vice president of animal protection for the MSPCA-Angel. “On a scale of one to nine, with one being very wasted and nine being obese, her body condition score was one.”

“It weighed about 10 pounds, when it should have weighed at least 20 pounds,” he said. “We put her on a specific re-feeding program, and her condition has stabilized since then.”

He said: “We are optimistic that she may be able to leave the hospital early this week.”

MSPCA staff said Brooke is very sweet, despite her condition.

“It’s always hard to see loving animals like Brooke suffer so much,” Kelly said. “We want to know how it got to this point, and we need people’s help to do that.”

Anyone with information about the dog’s owner is urged to contact MSPCA Law Enforcement by calling 617-522-6008 or 800-628-5808 or online at by emailing Brookline Animal Control at
