MOUNTAIN VIEW (BCN) — An abandoned dog found a permanent home Saturday after being found only hours earlier in a Mountain View park, police said.

Officers were called Saturday morning to Sylvan Park at 801 Devoto St. on a report of an abandoned dog.

When officers arrived they found a dog inside a cage covered in his own food and droppings.

When the officers brought the pup back to the department to be rinsed off, a dispatcher fell in love with him.

The dispatcher called the Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority and she is now in the process of bringing him home.
