News10NBC has an update involving Pierre, the French Bulldog found in a trash can in a Petco restroom.
Pierre is now in the care of Lollypop Farm. Officials say they have launched an investigation into who could be responsible for dumping the dog in the garbage in the restroom at Petco in Pittsford, essentially leaving him for dead.
Lollypop Farm officials want people to know there are options out there.
Adrienne McHargue, Lollypop Farm, said, "There are things that you can do if you can't take care of your animal, you can call us, you can turn over custody to lLollypop Farm. There are other animal shelters and rescues in the area that will certainly help you with your animal. so while it might not be an every day occurrence, it does happen and we want people to know there is help out there."
Pierre suffers from severe malnutrition and skin ailments, conditions that officials believe have been a problem for a while.
