Dog in critical condition after being dumped on road in Baytown

BAYTOWN, Texas (KTRK) -- An 8-month-old dog is fighting for her life after she was dumped on the side of the road in Baytown.

In a video, the couple who found Republic can be seen confronting the alleged person who dumped the dog.

She also tested positive for parasites and hookworms.

Republic is receiving specialized care at Vergi Animal Emergency Hospital in west Houston.
