Payton, the older of the two dogs, is doing well and is getting better every day. Sarge had more medical issues and was not able to win his battle. Midwest City Police told News 9 that he passed on Monday.

The owner of the dogs, Corey Harrison, admitted he left the animals in his old apartment because they needed to be bathed. Midwest City Police are waiting on a warrant and plan to charge Harrison with two counts of animal abuse.
