In Defense of Animals, an animal protection organization, is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for abandoning a German shepherd with zip ties around its mouth and neck and leaving it in a remote area of Malibu.

According to the organization’s press release, the dog was found in Malibu Creek Canyon on July 3 by two people in the area hiking.

The dog’s mouth had been tied shut with zip ties and another zip tied had been tied around the dog’s neck. The hikers called 911 and were able to remove the zip ties around the dog’s mouth before help arrived. Police and animal control personnel were able to remove the constricting tie around his neck. It was also noted the dog had inflammation, warts and skin tags on his legs, stomach and groin. The officers suspect the dog had been exposed to poison oak.

The dog, described by his rescuers as sweet and gentle appreciated the help and kind attention. He allowed people to pet him and ate snacks out of their hands. He was about 250 feet down the side of the road and was carried up the hill to safety with the help of first responders.

The dog is now with the Agoura Animal Care Center where he is receiving the needed care and attention.

Adoption listing: My name is ARGON and I’m approximately 7 years old male germ shepherd. I have been at the Agoura Animal Care Center since July 8, 2024.

Anyone who recognizes this dog or has any knowledge about his owners are urged to call 415.879.6879.
