The dogs’ eyes were severely infected and crusted over, and dirty fur that was hot to the touch, possibly from a skin condition. The dog is an adult white and black male Shih Tzu mix.  

The dog was left behind by an African American female and male in their late teens to early twenties, they were seen exiting an Infiniti four door sedan. There were at least three individuals inside the car.
