When deputies arrived at the Arizona home, they found a barefoot 2-year-old who was wearing just a diaper and a T-shirt and trying to get inside, according to a news release.
“The child was red faced, sweaty, and dirty,” the release from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office states.
Authorities found three dogs when they searched the San Tan Valley home, but they didn’t find the child’s parents, according to the release. Eventually, though, deputies located a telephone number for the man they thought was the child’s father.
“When they called and told him his child was found abandoned, he replied, ‘Whatever’, and hung up on the deputies,” the release stated.
