WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – A dog who was found with a large wound around his neck from a chain has a new home.

The Williamsburg County Animal Care and Control took to Facebook Thursday to ask for the public’s help in providing medical care for Walt after a chain became embedded in his neck.

Walt was found on Walter Road in Kingstree after he wandered into a backyard. Animal control officials say the property owner removed the chain from Walt’s neck and called for help.

“As you can see, the cut is very large and deep. Despite what he has endured, he is so sweet and cheerful towards our staff,” the Williamsburg County Animal Care and Control stated in a Facebook post.

Animal control officials have not identified Walt’s owner. But WMBF News learned that Walt was adopted by a Kingstree Animal Hospital employee.
