Ind. owners of dog frozen to ground charged

Jasper — The owners of a dog that survived being frozen to the ground in southern Indiana during this week's subzero cold wave are facing animal neglect charges.

Fifty-year-old George Kimmel and 55-year-old Dorothy Kimmel were charged after their Sheltie mix, Peanut, was found frozen to the ground Monday night outside their Dubois County home.

Sgt. Stuart Wilson with the Dubois County Sheriff's Office tells WFIE-TV that as a dog lover he "can't imagine leaving a dog out when it's that cold."

Deputies rescued the dog and took him to the county's Humane Society shelter. Spokeswoman Andrea Hedinger says Peanut is expected to fully recover, but the 15-pound canine is about half the weight he should be.

Hedinger says several people have already offered to adopt Peanut.
