Dog found tied to shopping cart in Fulton County ordered returned to owner

A dog found tied to a shopping cart near a Gloversville creek has been ordered returned to its owner.

The puppy had been in the care of the Fulton County Regional SPCA since a man says he found it crying on Sunday.

Work is now underway to confirm the dog’s owner.

An 18-year-old woman told NewsChannel 13 on Monday she and her best friend are the dog’s owners. The woman says she simply left him with an ex-boyfriend’s family for a night when she went out of town to make sure someone was caring for him.
