A Hoschton man suspects his neighbor may have poisoned his dog.

The information report was among recent calls made to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office in the West Jackson area.

The complainant said he noticed his small dog was sick and took it to an animal hospital, where he learned the dog had ingested rat poison. He said the dog stays inside or on a short lead in the yard.
