Julie Ann Major, 36 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said she was found starving a dog at her home on Old Summerville Road.

Officers said that her 1-year-old dog “Beanie” was found to be a 1/9 on the Purina Body Condition scale.  Reports added that the animal’s ribs, lumbar, vertebrae and pelvic bones were all visible from a distance.  The animal was also found dehydrated and with fleas, hookworms, and whipworms.

Major is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals.
