IJAMSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Two Frederick residents have been charged with abandoning eight dogs in Ijamsville.

The Frederick News-Post reports Christopher David Stone, 32, and Danielle Krull, 33, each face 24 charges alleging that they failed to provide proper veterinary care for the seven pit bull-mix puppies and one adult male and abandoning them last year. A criminal summons was served on Wednesday.

Animal control officials say the dogs were suffering from weight loss and skin conditions. The adult was euthanized when officials determined he had serious medical problems. Animal Control Director Harold Domer says five puppies have been adopted and the other two were rescued by the Animal Welfare League of Frederick County.

Investigators say a witness who recognized the dogs led them to Stone and Krull.

    Should treat this as a serious criminal activity; they deserve significant punishment. Dogs depend on their people for basic care, and people who don’t care for their pets should suffer some discomfort themselves. They could have taken them to a shelter where they would have been cared for. Hope they won’t be allowed to have more pets in the future.
