An extremely emaciated dog is now in rescue care and its owner facing animal abuse charges.

WSYR-TV reports the SPCA received an anonymous tip about a bulldog not getting proper care. They found Sasha, an American bulldog who weighed only about half her normal weight. She's at a veterinarian clinic getting treatment, which could last several months. Investigators say without intervention, Sasha would likely have died in weeks. The SPCA says Sasha's owner was charged with failure to provide sustenance and failure to provide proper veterinary care.
