ANIMAL RELATED INCIDENTS

Mahoney Drive 7500
Franconia District On Friday, June 21 about 2:00 p.m., Animal Control Officer Earwitt Powell went to the home of Todd Dixon, of 7512 Mahoney Drive in the Lorton area, to investigate a report of a mistreated dog. Inside the home, Officer Powell found an adult male Rottweiller. The dog was suffering from a skin condition, which caused it to lose most of its hair. It was covered with large sores, was grossly underweight, had a pus-like substance almost completely closing its eyes and was infested with fleas. Dixon kept the dog in a room with urine soaked rugs, encrusted with feces and full of flies. Officer Powell seized the dog and transported it to the Belle Haven Animal Medical Center for treatment. A warrant was then obtained charging Dixon with animal cruelty.
