CORDOVA — A Cordova man who left a mama dog and her pups in the cold without food or water is wanted on charges of animal cruelty.

Jimmy Dale Wolfe, 57, has not been seen by members of the Cordova Police Department since they rescued the malnourished pit bull and six puppies on Jan. 16.

Officers were called to Wolfe’s residence on Warrior Avenue to conduct a welfare check on a child. Though the child was determined not to be in danger, the mama dog was found tethered to her doghouse with a 40-pound log chain in below-freezing temperatures.

The dogs had no food, and the only water available was frozen.

Rescuers United for Furbabies (RUFF), a local animal rescue group, took the dogs from the residence and placed them in a foster home.

According to a post on RUFF’s Facebook page from Jan. 16, a local veterinarian determined that the mama dog was 10 pounds underweight and suffering from heartworms.

The dog, who has been given the name Nicky, had gained seven pounds by her most recent check-up on Wednesday.

The runt of the litter, who has been named Happy, struggled to nurse and was taken to a home where she could be bottle-fed after she struggled to nurse. Happy is now attempting to eat mush.

The other five puppies are also doing well.

However, the mistreatment of animals continues to be a problem in Cordova.

Police Chief Nick Smith said Friday that his department is currently investigating two additional cases of animal cruelty.
