(Springfield, MA) — The condition of a small poodle-mix found wrapped in a trash bag at a Springfield demolition site has improved considerably. The emaciated pooch found Tuesday morning was treated by a Northampton veterinarian and released to the Dakin Animal Shelter. She’s been given the name “Buffy.” Staffers say Buffy was horribly abused, is still fearful, and not yet ready for adoption. Anyone with information about the abuse of the dog is asked to call (413) 781-4000.
