SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio (WOIO) -A malnourished dog, who happens to be painted pink, was returned to its owner early this afternoon, South Euclid Police told 19 News.

Police said no charges have been filed.

Notre Dame students took the pup to police after finding it loose near College Road, a South Euclid Police Department Facebook post said.

This morning, Notre Dame College students discovered this dog running loose near College Rd in our city. The dog appeared very malnourished, and for some reason, painted pink. The dog has been taken in by our officers and fed. Attempts have been made to remove the pink paint. Any information regarding this would be of great benefit to our police department. We would like to hold the individuals who did this accountable, and reunite the dog with their original owner (provided of course the original owner isn’t the person(s) who painted and malnourished the dog).
