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.
