(Hamilton)--A Hamilton man appeared in Municipal Court to face charges of cruelty to a companion animal. 42 year old Brian Scott Trauthwein was arrested after two dogs, a black pit bull, and a brown female boxer were found emaciated on Franklin Street last Thursday. The pit bull named Chloe appeared to be recovering well, but the boxer named Porsche was seriously malnourished and was near death. The Animal Friends Humane Association is trying to nurse the Porsche back to health, but they admit she has a long road ahead. She did make some progress over the weekend, according to the Butler County Dog Warden's Office. Trauthwein was ordered held on $7,500 bond, and will return to court April 2nd.
