PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Some concerned viewers contacted us over the weekend about a dog that was left chained out in the cold, pouring rain. 

Many of our viewers have commented on Facebook and called into our newsroom asking what could be done to help the animal. Tonight we bring you an update on this situation.

A woman called us today to tell us that the dog's owner, Glenda McClendon, is surrendering the dog to her. The woman tells us that McClendon may have a medical condition. 

The neighbors, who originally contacted us, say that they moved into their Pearl home a month ago and have witnessed what they call the dog's mistreatment.

Sunday they say he could be seen repeatedly trying but failing to dig water from beneath the shed to get out of the cold rain.

The neighbors called police and MARL over the weekend in hopes of improving the animal's living conditions.

We will have much more on this update tonight in our newscasts.
