"The condition of this dog is concerning," Brad Nichols, the humane society's senior manager of animal cruelty investigations, said in a release.

The dog, believed to a Basenji or bull-terrier type, was found at large near St. Kateri Tekakwitha School, which is located at 1005 Abbotsford Dr. N.E.

Nichols encouraged the dog's owner to come forward and provide a medical history for the animal.

Anyone who recognizes the dog is asked to contact the humane society at 403-205-4455.

The dog was found with these large growths on its hindquarters that the Calgary Humane Society described as "concerning." They hope to locate the owner and obtain the dog's medical history. (Calgary Humane Society)
