A former Watsonville police dog has been seized by the SPCA for Monterey County, and its owner, a former Watsonville police officer, is facing charges.

The severely emaciated and dehydrated dog, a German shepherd, belonged to former Watsonville officer Francisco Ibarra. Ibarra was fired by the department last year.
