BROOKLYN, N.Y. — A dog was left tied up all night outside the Brooklyn location of NYC Animal Care Centers.

NYC Animal Care officials said the German Shepherd appears to have been previously tied to something and attempted to bite off his own foot to escape.

He is expected to make a full recovery, although his leg will likely need to be amputated.
