Neglected puppy owners face charges in Texas

HOUSTON — Prosecutors are seeking jail time for two people who police say moved away and left their dog behind.

Bella, a chocolate lab puppy, had severe mange, malnutrition and intestinal problems after being trapped on her own for months before the Houston Humane Society nursed her back to health.

Tristan Hancock, 21, and Elisha Gonzalez, 44, are charged with animal abandonment, according to the Harris County District Attorney.
