The dog had been abandoned with duct tape wrapped around its muzzle. It was picked up by a local animal shelter.

Roy Gross, the chief of the county's SPCA, said that investigators are determined to find the people responsible for harming the dog.

"To leave this dog unable to eat or drink, abandoned and frightened on a busy road is heartbreaking," Gross said.

"He's so sweet, I had him inside [and] he hasn't made a noise," he said.
