SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) -- A foreclosed home in Saginaw that a man bought for $1,000 came with many things.
It had some plumbing and appliances.
It also featured a live pit bull chained inside one of the bedrooms, unpleasant odors and heaps of trash.
Antonio Brooks lives next to the downtrodden, 896-square-foot, two-bedroom bungalow.
MLive.com reports Brooks bought the home at auction for $1,000, plus $600 for deed transfer and other fees.
Brooks says that he when he looks at the house he sees a future home for his mother.
After having the Saginaw County Animal Care Center retrieve the dog, Brooks says he spent two weeks bleaching floors and walls and removing feces and garbage.

    Boy you're so caring there. You could of been nicer in your comment there. What about the poor dog. Poor baby left there to die. They could of least let him have run of the house. People make me sick. Too bad they can't figure out who the previous owner was to charge them with animal cruelty

    They'll test the dog for disease and assessing it's temperament before making any decisions about whether to rehab it or put it down. Pit bulls are naturally very sweet dogs, but get a bad rap because people treat them poorly so they become mean...as dies any animal that is mistreated or trained to be mean.

    I certainally hope he shot it. Who knows what diseases that dog could have had. Pit Bulls need to be put down if someone finds one.
