ELLISVILLE, Miss. - Ellisville Police are searching for a man they are accusing of animal cruelty.

They say one dog was found dead outside of the suspects house.

Ellisville Police say they got a call Thanksgiving Day that a dead dog was laying in the yard of this house on Main Street.

"You can tell that they were not taken care of and that they haven't been," said Investigator Christy Carona.

She said they found a second dog alive inside this shed.

"He was in his own urine and fecal matter," she said."The dogs were basically skin and bones."

Carona said the chain for the dog that was alive was only a few feet long.

"He could just barely get to his water and there was no food," she said.

Police arrested 27-year-old Maxie Posey Monday and charged her with animal cruelty. Authorities say they also brought her boyfriend, Isacc Weber as well but he walked out of the police station without anyone noticing.

"We do have a warrant for his arrest and he is charged with animal cruelty and fleeing," she said.

Carona said this is not the first time they've got a call about the dogs at this house. She said this summer a neighbor called police because they believed they were pit bulls and the city has an ordinance against those type of pets.

"The animals were checked out, they were not vicious, they were beautiful dogs and it was determined that they were not pit bulls, but in the bull dog family," she said/ 

Carona says they hope they can find Weber soon.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police department or the Jones County Crime Stoppers.
