INWOOD — Uptown dog lovers are working feverishly to find a new home for an abandoned pit bull that was discovered chained outside a popular Dyckman Street restaurant early Thanksgiving morning.
The dog, which rescuers named Inwood Sandy, was discovered shaking and cowering on the street during the early morning hours on Thursday, Nov. 24.
The brindled pit bull had lacerations above her right eye and neck and appeared to have recently given birth at least once although she is only approximately one year old.
Within hours of finding the dog, a network of plugged-in dog lovers in Upper Manhattan found her a foster home in the residential building above Papasito restaurant, with Inwood resident Katie Weaver and her several cats.
The group is now trying to find Sandy a “forever home,” through Facebook and other channels.
