A little dog was found lost and bleeding with a rubber band around its mouth.

The Shih Tzu was brought to Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital in Portland Sunday night after being discovered by a good Samaritan.

Veterinarians said it appears the dog had the rubber band around its mouth for about a week.

The male dog is believed to be between 1 and 2 years old. He is currently in protective custody.

Multnomah County Animal Services is asking anyone who knows anything about the dog or the owner to call 503-988-6238.
