Nobody knows the dog's name - some call him Demo because the property he lives on his scheduled for demolition. The worker says he heard it had been sold to a nearby hospital, which may explain why people are only seen at the property loading up boxes.
Animal control officers visited 'Demo' about a week ago, he adds. They told the dog's owners they would have to remove his chain.
"He was on a chain in a kennel," the worker snarls in disgust.
And what a kennel it is.
"It's basically a big old mudhole back there," he says.
When it rains, they see the dog standing on top of his crude doghouse to stay out of the mud. When it's cold, well, that's a different kind of hell.
"Last year, when it got really cold he just dug a hole down in the dirt and he was just laying in the hole, shivering."
