    A group that finds new homes for pit bulldogs wants police to file charges against a McMinn County man.
    It placed a dog with him.
    But after a few weeks.. the new owner quit bringing the dog by the vet.
    They say their investigation revealed that the owner tied the dog to the bumper of his truck.
    He then forgot about the dog and took off.. Dragging it a mile.
    And he never took it to the vet.
    The dog is now in the custody of a Lenoir City animal clinic.

    The group, Break the Chain Pit Bull Rescue, has filed a complaint with McMinn County authorities.

    A McMinn County man accused of dragging a dog behind his truck, is now charged with animal cruelty.

    The operator of the Break the Chain Pit Bull Rescue Service in Lenoir City told Ten News earlier this month that Billy Jacobs adopted Boss in March. When they checked up on the dog a few weeks later, they discovered he'd been seriously injured, and had not been taken to the vet.
    The rescue says Jacobs told them he had tied the dog to the back bumper, and forgotten about him. He said it was an accident.

    The Rescue Service owner, James Woody, says they took Boss to the vet. He had a shoulder stapled and was badly scraped on his head and hips but is expected to recover and needs a new home. Woody says the vet bill exceeds $1,000.
