EAST LIVERPOOL, OH (KDKA/CBS) - A second dog was found Tuesday night covered in thick, hot tar leaking from an abandoned plant.

A boxer-beagle mix named Miley was found not far from where her brother, Oden, was rescued this past weekend.

Oden was found Sunday and taken to Ashleigh's Dog Grooming at Safari Dog in Chester,WV, where it took workers nine hours to remove the tar from his fur.

Rescuers found his sister in the same area.

Ashleigh Yoho Deal of Ashleigh's Dog Grooming said this is a danger to the whole community.

"This is a public hazard for these animals," Yoho Deal said. "If children get in them, it's letting off a lot of chemicals, so this needs to be addressed. It needs to be cleaned up. We can't be doing this for these dogs. It's horrible, they shouldn't have to go through this."

Oden was taken to an emergency vet in Robinson Township where he was treated for neck pain, severe burns and an eye infection.

Miley will see a vet, too, once she's cleaned up.

Yoho Deal said the company needs to be held responsible.

"We're hoping nobody put them in this substance," she said. "We're hoping they just wondered on to it. But, in reality, the company that owns this property, that left it, is negligent, is the one that caused this to the dogs."
