GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A dead dog has been found in an abandoned apartment in Grand Forks, and police are trying to determine who was supposed to be caring for it.

Lt. Grant Schiller told the Grand Forks Herald that there was no food or water, including in the toilet, in the apartment when the 5-year-old Pekingese was found Wednesday.

Schiller says the dog weighed six pounds, and veterinarians who examined the dog say she should have been 15 to 20 pounds.

Police have tracked down the dog's owner in Minneapolis, who told an officer a friend was supposed to be caring for the pet. Police declined to release the owner's name.
