Dog found with chain wrapped around neck dies

LAS VEGAS, N.M. (KRQE) – Sad news to report on a dog found badly abused in northern New Mexico.

Fonzi died Wednesday night after suffering from seizures.

An x-ray also showed he had developed two large masses in his abdomen.

Fonzi was discovered in Las Vegas last week with a small chain wrapped tightly around his neck.

The rescue group NM Dog did everything they could to keep Fonzi alive but he was just too badly injured.

The search continues for the person responsible for hurting Fonzi. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
