Brimfield police are looking for the pet owner who dumped a deaf puppy inside a box on the side of the road.
The blond-haired puppy was found Saturday by a passerby on Tallmadge Road near the Rootstown border. Police Chief David Oliver posted the puppy’s picture on the department’s popular Facebook page, which now has more than 26,000 followers.

The female puppy appears to be a boxer. Oliver said he believes the puppy was abandoned because it is deaf.
“We figured the puppy was not ‘lost’ simply because ‘lost’ dogs are not left in a cardboard box on the side of a busy highway. To say I am aggravated about this would be a greatly minimizing,” Oliver wrote.
